Only to Be Yours Lord!

I love how the Lord brings along the right songs at the right time. I heard this particular song {lyrics below} while mixing up a batch of muffins yesterday evening. The lyrics echo my heart's plea. 

Only To Be Yours

Undivided, strip everything else away,
Burn the idols, the things in my life that have replaced You,
I lay my life down here on Your alter,
Empty my hands of all I've been holding back

Captivated, You've stolen my heart away,
I've been liberated, the chains of this world forever broken, 
You laid Your life down,
Now I surrender, lifting my hands,
I'm holding nothing back

For every need I want is found in You,
every breath in me a gift from You,
I have nothing here apart from You,
I am Yours Lord, only Yours

Take everything I have, only to be Yours, Lord, Yours Lord, take it from my hands until I'm holding on to only You.

This is also close to my heart,Ana. I have not heard these words before, but the name Meredith Andrews makes me thing of James MacDonald's (of 'Walk in the Word') church in Elgin or Rolling Meadows, IL
Thank you and praising the dear Lord for your surrender~
