Songs that Shaped My Life: #1


Give Up Yourself

 Every man has his beliefs
His own point of view
On everything from big to small

Some of them we must defend
With everything we've got
Some of them don't matter much at all

You can speak out every time
You think that you are right
Hold your ground until the end

You can rattle tooth and nail
In each and every fight
And you might even lose some friends

But when you give up yourself
You are strong as a man can be
It's the hardest thing that you will ever do
When you give up yourself
The world will clearly see
Lord Jesus walking next to you
Lord Jesus walking hand in hand with you

When you give up your pride
And make those conflicts cease
Some folks may laugh and call you weak
But it takes strength to be the one who makes the peace
And it takes courage to be meek

When you give up yourself
You are strong as a man can be
It's the hardest thing that you will ever do
When you give up yourself
The world will clearly see
Lord Jesus walking next to you
Lord Jesus walking hand in hand with you
