Absolute Surrender

i sit in your presence, O Lord, awaiting your will,
Until you move me, i remain stone still.

How can i surrender that which is forever yours,
How can i give love to That which is all love,
How can i give works, when i cannot raise my hand,
i am lower than the lowest sinner could be,
For as nothing, i can repent nothing,
With no voice, i sing no praises,
i cannot seek for That which is everywhere,
i cannot pray to change the Unchangeable,

i am less than a raindrop in your ocean,
i am less than an atom in your universe,
You are All, and i am naught.

When you are as far as the remotest star, i rejoice!
When you are as near as my every breath, i rejoice!
When you blind me with your light, I rejoice!
When you cast me into the darkest night, I rejoice!
Tribulations or consolations, come what may,
Fill me with thy spirit, or leave me dry,
Thy Will be done, for there is only Thy Will.

i sit in your presence, O Lord, awaiting your will,
Until you move me, i remain stone still.

-Milton Grisham
