Acceptance and Love

Song & Verse: Once & For All

Song & Verse: Once & For All by Lauren Daigle

From the opening verse…

God I give you what I can today….”
These scattered ashes that I hid away….
I lay it all at Your feet.

 to the refrain…

Oh, let this be
Where I die
My Lord with Thee
Crucified
Be lifted high
As my kingdoms fall
Once and for all
Once and for all

…this song enraptures me and puts my spirit into a state of instant praise and prayer. Father, let me die in You. Pour over me. Don’t let me go. Don’t leave me to my own devices… my habits of self-destruction. Continue to cleanse me. Purify my heart, My Dear Dear Father. Let this be where I die – with You, crucified and lifted high. Survivor of the world; glorified by Your refining fires.

Pour over me….

Let this be where I die… let this moment be the end of me. Help me to release every thought and hope I’ve held tightly to. Cleanse me of every idea of righteousness and right living. Scrub me of the compromises made from my understanding of who I am in this world. Lead me to my full surrender into your embrace and everything I am becoming.

God I give you what I can today… You know I don’t have much – only my hopes, dreams and visions – but I do believe if I give them all back to you they will not remain fruitless dead things. With me, they’ve turned to ashes without ever taking flight… but You said Your Word does not return to You void. You will flesh out everything I’ve given back to you. This I do believe.

From the corners of my deepest shame, the empty places where I’ve worn your name… I tried to be everything I thought I was meant to be only to become no one of value in this world. No one of value to anyone anywhere. What keeps me is my knowledge of You. I’m not so down that I neglect to value who I am in You. I honor who You are in me.

Breathe Your Life into me. Let this be where I come alive. 

 

Once & For All by Lauren Daigle

God I give You all I can today
The scattered ashes
That are hid away
I lay’em all, at Your feet

From the corners
Of my deepest shame
The empty places
Where I’ve worn Your name
Show me the Love
I say I believe

Oh, help me to lay it down
Oh, Lord I’ll lay it down

Oh let this be
Where I die
My Lord with thee, crucified
And be lifted high
Till my kingdoms fall
Once and for all
Once and for all

There is victory
In my saviors loss
And the crimson
Flowing from the cross
Pour over me,
Pour over me, yes

Oh let this be
Where I die
My Lord with Thee, Crucified|
Be lifted high
As my kingdoms fall
Once and for all
Once and for all

Oh, Lord I’ll lay it down
Oh, Lord I’ll lay it down
Help me to lay it down
Oh, Lord I lay it down

Oh let this be where I die
My Lord with Thee, crucified
And be lifted high
As my kingdoms fall
Once and for all
Once and for all
Once and for all
Once and for all
