Full Surrender

When Jesus came to your heart
Upon that fateful day,
You gladly made Him welcome
And asked Him in to stay.

But when you bade Him enter,
Did you give to Him your all?
Bring Him to your life's centre,
Or just the entrance hall?

Does He dwell in the suburbs,
The outskirts of your life,
Because in the Inner City
He may cause you too much strife?

Unlock the secret places,
And fling wide all the doors,
For only Full Surrender
Will make true freedom yours.

You'll never know the fullness
Of the Glory He can bring,
Till He owns your life completely,
And reigns there as your King!
