LOVE IS SURRENDER

The hymn is by Ralph Carmichael, and was adapted into a popular song recorded by the Carpenters in the early 1970's. A recording of the song is available on this CD:

I hope this helps. Here are the lyrics:

1.
Talk about love
how it makes life complete
You can talk all you want
make it sound nice and sweet,
But the words have an empty ring,
and they don't really mean a thing,

Chorus:
Without Him love is not to be found;
not to be found.
For love is surrender,
Love is surrender to His will
Love is surrender to His will

2.
Sing about love
and the strength it can give
You can sing how you're ready
to face life and live,
But you know as the days go by
that no matter how hard you try,

Chorus

3.
Shout about love
and the wars will all end
You can shout we're all brothers
and even pretend
But you can't cover up the past
just pretending we'll never last,

Chorus

Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. Every church is going to encounter difficulties, but when we learn to humble ourselves, we leave room for Him to work...

God bless,
Steve
