Hillsong UNITED - I Surrender

Listen to the song ‘I Surrender’ by Hillsong UNITED and let the lyrics encourage you as you see God’s face.

“Here I am down on my knees again, surrendering all, surrendering all
And find me here, Lord as You draw me near, desperate for You, desperate for You
I surrender, drench my soul as mercy and grace unfold, I hunger and thirst, I hunger and thirst
With arms stretched wide, I know You hear my cry, speak to me now, speak to me now”

What an incredible and powerful song about our hunger and desperation for God. Matt Crocker of Hillsong UNITED shared about the song and how it came to be.

“‘I Surrender’ was written as we were preparing for our annual Encounter youth conference, which is a pivotal event for our youth ministry every year,” Matt said. “The theme was about having a hunger and desperation for God and we needed a song to really mark the conference with. After talking with our youth pastor I began writing three or four other songs with the conference in mind but kept coming back to these few lyrics, ‘Here I am down on my knees again…surrendering all.’”

Matt continued: “I continued working on the song right up to the time of the first band rehearsals, and as we began rehearsing, we felt God really breathe on the music, and the lyrics, and it became a theme of not just that youth conference but also a song of prayer and personal dedication for our entire church as our worship teams soon began leading it across our weekend services…‘I surrender…I want to know You more…Lord have Your way in me.’”
