Jesus, Lover Of My Soul (It's All About You)

This is a gentle song of surrender. It is making peace with God as the struggle is left behind--the focus is on Jesus!

By the way, while dissimilar in style, the original hymn Jesus, Lover Of My Soul was written by Charles Wesley in 1740. It is perhaps one of the finest and most inspiring hymns ever written, full of the Word of God. Here is a link to the wonderful website Cyberhymnal and this old hymn. You can hear it (synthesized) and see lyrics.

Lyrics by Paul Oakley:
It's all about You, Jesus
And all this is for You
For Your glory and your fame
It's not about me
As if You should do things my way
You alone are God
And I surrender to your ways

Jesus, lover of my soul
All consuming fire is in Your gaze
Jesus, I want you to know
I will follow you all my days
For no one else in history is like you
And history itself belongs to you
Alpha and Omega, You have loved me
And I will share eternity with You
