And with tears, I lay my baby boy down
On the altar, where I know he needs to be
With open hands and an open heart
I turn around now
And give the glory back to You

I make the journey up this mountain
Every step with a heavy heart
My little one there is so much promise
Tied up in all you've come to be
But now I know, and if I'm honest
You clearly mean too much to me
(If I) love the gift more than the Giver
Then I have truly lost my way


Every day I wake up and you're right there
In my arms
And so begins the struggle to
Lay you down again and again
The battle lines they have been drawn
Only true surrender will win this war
Letting go I know the best is yet to come


Over and over I run it through
And in my mind I gasp for breath
What I want now and what I need
Are two completely different things
A call to worship (with) no strings attached
I lay my life before You here
Safer hands, I'll never find
To gain my soul, I'll lay him down this time

Chorus (x2)
