Yeah I know, y'know, what a calling is
I mean we all have a calling in our life, I believe
You know I'm from the dirt, man
I come up in these streets, went without eatin'
You know what I'm sayin'?

Saw my mom go without eatin'
I got tired of that I had to go out there
In them streets and hustle, you know?
I mean you know what I'm sayin'?

I mean it's easy for y'all to say, y'know
Surrender your life, you know what I'm sayin'?
Give your life to God and all that
Y'know, that's good and I believe in God
But when you got bills at your front door all the time
You know what I'm sayin'?

Kids screamin' "Daddy, Momma, where the food at?"
Man it makes it kinda hard to believe in
Y'know, and have faith in something that you can't see
Even though you wanna believe
Y'all just gonna have to just pray for me
You know what I'm sayin'? 'Cause uh

Constantly my mind and my heart is racing
All by myself trying to solve all of these problems I'm facing
Looking to man, trying to find hope
But man will never know the depth of my struggles

I was depending on myself to give myself a hand
But when depending on myself fell and time again
And that's why I'm standing here alone with no one else
Lord I realized that I can't fight these battles by myself

I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to You, Lord
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to You, Lord
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to You, Lord
Coming out with both hands up, I surrender

Listen, I tried everything I could to make it work
But everything I seemed to try just made it worse
And every road that I'd go down there were no signs
Destination lonely with no peace of mind

I was depending on myself to give myself a hand
But when depending on myself fell and time again
And that's why I'm standing here alone with no one else
Lord I realized that I can't fight these battles by myself, I surrender

I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to you, Lord
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to you, Lord
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to you, Lord
Coming out with both hands up, I surrender

Won't you guard the place around it? There's nowhere for me to go
Joy I have tried to find, see I've searched high and I've searched low
Said you walked throughout the building
So come and rescue me from this hell 'cause I can't do it by myself

I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to you, Lord
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to you, Lord
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to you, Lord
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to you, Lord

I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to you, Lord
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to you, Lord
I surrender, I surrender, I surrender to you, Lord
I surrender, I surrender
