The Call of Surrender

 God calls His elect people
 to a life of total surrender
 showing their faith in God
 their life's not as it were

 This is a call of divinity
 God marking out His will
 for the people of His choosing
 who seek to follow their master's drill

 God has the authority to call
 those created in His image
 for in His will they are fulfilled
 following their God no matter their age

 So as soldiers of Christ
 to Jesus we bow the knee
 surrendering to God's will
 by the cross being set free

 As Jesus surrendered His will
 by His example we follow
 for His way is the best
 don't put it off till tomorrow
