EVERYTHING I AM, EVERYTHING I LONG TO BE
I lay it down at Your feet.

Everything I am, everything I long to be
I lay it down at Your feet.
 
I lay it down, I lay it down,
I lay it down at Your feet.
I lay it down, I lay it down,
I lay it down at Your feet
 
Oh, pearl of greatest price,
No act of sacrifice
Can match the gift of life
I find within Your gaze.
 
Oh, what a sweet exchange:
I die to rise again,
Lifted up from the grave
Into Your hands of grace
 
Into Your hands of grace
