All I am I lay it down

Added 2nd October 2008


If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

All I am, I lay it down,
for you, my God and friend;
take my life into your hands
- here I am to send.
Search my heart, and you will find
willingness to serve,
for your cross has covered me
with grace I don’t deserve.

O Lord, lead me on.
O Lord, lead me on.
O Lord, lead me on.
O Lord, lead me on.

This is simply a song of dedication. It started out as an alternative to songs such as Jesus, All for Jesus and was written during a time of worship, touching on the idea of God searching us and knowing our hearts, then leading us into the future he has for us. The basis of the song has not changed dramatically from the first time I played it during worship, so hopefully maintains the intimacy of the song. I hope this song serves you well.

My favourite from Resound Worship songbank so far. Easy to sing and to pick up. Good as a solo, group song or for the congregation.

This is SUCH a great song- I've used it on countless occasions as a response song and it seems to work really well every time.

Beautiful, simple-to-use ministry song, works brilliantly in times of response as the congregation can pick it up so quickly as use it as their own prayer.
