Give It Up
(A song of witness)

All my days through all my ways,
Shows that emptiness surrounds me.
And all my fears hold back the tears,
Till someday, they are sure to drown me.

I hear Jesus is the answer.
Im just not bold enough to pray.
And what do I have to offer?
Im told; Give my heart away.

Give it up, give it up, give it up

I know Ive heard from Gods own word.
I sense it deep within my spirit.
But theirs another side, that wants to hide,
Satisfied it does not hear it.

I feel insecure and lonely,
Even though Im in a crowd.
Deep within my soul tells me,
This silence longs to cry out loud.

Give It Up, give It Up, give It Up


Its time that I recognize the lie,
And start to make my own decision.
So take apart, this broken heart,
And mend this Spiritual division.

Im going to give it up for Jesus,
Im going to give my heart to Him,
And as I pray for forgiveness,
Born Again, Im free from sin!

Give it up; give it up for Jesus,
Let Him do whatever He pleases,
Dont let the Devil
Tear your heart in pieces

Give it up give it up give it up.

Yes, give it up; give it up for Jesus,
And let Him do whatever He pleases,
Dont let the Devil
Tear your heart in pieces

Wont you give it up give it up just give it up.
