Give yourself to the Lord
Mcfortunato ©2019

V1
Are you troubled, loaded down with pain?
Is the pressure so great, your tears burst like rain?
Do you give life your all, but your problems increase?
Jesus invites you to come, and lay down at His feet

Chorus
And Give yourself to the Lord
(He will help you through)
Give yourself the Lord
(He will give you rest too)
Let your worries go
(Leave it up to Him)
Give yourself to the Lord

V2
Are you afraid; fighting an inner war?
Does peace look as far away, as some distant shore?
Do you long for strength, in times of need?
Jesus invites you to come, and lay down at His feet


Chorus
Give yourself to the Lord
(He will heal you)
Give yourself the Lord
(He will give you rest too)
Let your worries go
(Put your trust in Him)
Give yourself to the Lord

Bridge
God sees your heart, and He hears your prayers
He can change your heart, carry these burdens you bear

Chorus

Mcfortunato,

I really like this. I don't think the word but is needed in the last line of the verses.

One line that bothered me was the wounds sting and heat. I don't think heat works.
Maybe, you're burdened with defeat, or metaphorically speaking something about Gods mercy seat.

Just my few thoughts,
Good song

Just some thoughts....

Are you in trouble, burdened with pain?
Is the pressure so great, your tears burst like rain?
Do you give life your all, yet fail the test?
Jesus says "Come, I will give you rest"

Give yourself to the Lord
(He will see you through)
Give yourself the Lord
(He will reward you)
Give yourself to the Lord
(Cast your treasures to heaven)
Give yourself to the Lord
(All is forgiven)

Don't be afraid, of losing the fight
Darkness canít be, where there is light
Let go of rage, don't seal your own tomb
Jesus says "Come, I will heal your wounds"
