Will You Yield?

Time sheds its tears
-In yesterdays
-In yesteryears.

Those times are not here,
No, they do not last.
So look ahead,
But don’t look past;

The one who calls
Your heart to kneel
In fields of glory,
Through hope that is real.

So much of life’s story
Can be overcome
By God the Father,
Spirit, Son.

Jesus wants
Your heart to be healed.
Let it be
To Him you yield!

His love for you
Is like no other.
His love for you
No one can smother.

In a way you’ve never seen before
Jesus is the way, truth, life, and more.
There is no other, of that be sure,
Who can ease the way, open the door,
To Heaven’s gate, to Heaven’s shore.

Yield sign with arrow pointing heavenward

So give way to Him, do not delay!
Yield to Him, this very day.
And oh, your heart He will array
With grace, with love, with desire to pray.
Yield to Him, oh please say yeah!
Your heart with Him can trust, can stay.
