You see my blood, sweat, and tears.
I have fought on the ground before you.
Take everything.
Blood and sweat and tears.
You have fought on the ground before me,
When you gave everything.

I have lived this war too long.
Come and take everything.
I have lived this sin too long.
Come and take everything.
God, relieve it all, finally.

Finally, I surrender.
All to you, I give it all to you.
Finally, I surrender.
All I am, I owe it all to you.
Finally, I surrender.
All to you, I give it all to you.
Finally, I surrender.
All I am, I owe it all.

You fight for me when I can't fight for myself.

This battle is not mine.
But the battle belongs to the Lord.
This battle is not mine.
But the battle belongs to the Lord.

I am a slave, unto this broken flesh.
Because You gave me hope.
I am a slave, unto this broken flesh.
Because You are my hope.
I am the slave to my flesh.
That man has God.
I am a free man.
I am a free man.

Under the blood I rise.
Redeemed I stand.
Carried back from hell, by your nail scarred hands.
And now I'm free.
You broke my chains and You gave me the key.
Redeemed I stand.
Carried back from hell, by your nail scarred hands.
And now I'm free.
You broke my chains and You gave me the key.

So now, I bow to show You, that You are everything to me.

Finally, I surrender.
All to you, I give it all to you.
Finally, I surrender.
All I am, I owe it all to you.
Finally, I surrender.
All to you, I give it all to you.
Finally, I surrender.
All I am, I owe it all.

    General Comment"You see my blood, sweat, and tears.
    I have poured on the ground before you.
    Take everything.
    Blood and sweat and tears.
    You have poured on the ground before me,
    When you gave everything."

    "So, I am no slave unto this broken flesh.
    Because You gave mhope.
    I am no slave to this broken flesh.
    Because You are my hope.
    I am no slave to my broken flesh.
    That man has died - I am a free man!"

    This is straight out of the album cover!
    Mattie performs it a little different. One of the "unto"s is really just "to"
    and he says "I am no slave to my flesh!"

    beautiful work of Spirit filled art.
