No longer will I allow you to take me to a place that I do not desire to be.
You see, I have conquired another fear that once lived inside of me.
I am not afraid to die, but I am afraid to live like the world
Having my life in a spiral like a storm out of control in a constant twirl.
My desire is to please the Almighty God of Heaven and Earth
Who gave His Only Begotten Son just to give me a new birth.
Whereever He leads me, there I am sure to follow.
Whatever He says to eat, I will chew it and be certain to swallow.
Whatever He says to drink, I will gulp and not sip.
Whereever He says to wash, I will take a second dip.
I will do whatsoever God shall ask of me.
I will be His willing slave for He has truly set me free.
I will follow Him into the storm for I know that He is my shield.
I will follow Him into the fight for He is my armour on the battlefield.
I will walk behind Him for He will never lead me astray.
I will lift my voice and praise Him for He is my breath throughout each day.
Oh, yes. I will bravely go with Him anywhere.
Because I know He will not leave me once He takes me there.
I will boldly proclaim unto the nations that the Messiah lives.
Whatever He desires of me I will be sure to give.
I will endure the fire, and pain of any test,
Because I know that God is with me and He loves me best.
If He tells me to "Stop and stand still,"
I shall not ask a question; I'll just obey and say, "I WILL."
