Hands In The Air by The Waiting


Lyrics
If I raise my hands, just to lift the shade
Will I reveal a sky heavy and gray?
Will last night be a memory sweetly fading?
How I hate a morning starting out this way.
On these lonely, raging mornings, I would whip you if I could,
But You're on the mighty side of strong and the perfect side of good

If I raise my hands, will You grab me by the wrists
And will You try to pull my from the fray?
If I bring my fingers together into fists
Will You hold me firmly anyway?
I would trie to escape You, but for everyday I'm sure,
You're on the huge side of big and the holy side of pure

Ok, hear what I say
As I raise my hands in surrender today
Ok, here I will stay
Hands in the air, singin' "Have Thine own way"

If I raise my hands, so weak, and thin and frail,
Will You reveal the light of mercy in Your eyes?
If I cry to You faintly, will my feeble whisper fail?
Or will it find its way to a reply?
Because now that I'm exhausted, I think I'm ready to admit
That I have spent all my resistance on someone I can't resist

Ok, hear what I say
As I raise my hands in surrender today
Ok, here I will stay,
Hands in the air, singin' "Have Thine own way"

Light from my window sill, make my way to the door
I hang my head and still I know You're wanting more
Over the threshold now I move across the yard
All that my will allows, my every step is hard
Now in the garden I carve out six feet of space
There make my will comply, lie down upon my face
Been toe to toe too long, I'm tired of fighting You
I see You were too strong, cause now I'm black and blue
But now I understand how a loser's due to win
How every dying man is sure to rise again
I raise my left hand one, I raise my right hand two
Under the morning sun, my spirit cries to You

Ok, hear what I say
As I raise my hands in surrender today.
Right here under the sun,
Hands in the air singin' "Thy will be done".

I'm here under the sun,
Hands in the air singin' "Thy will be done".
Okay, here I will stay,
Hands in the air singin' "Have Thine own way, have Thine own way."
