For Whatever It Takes
"Thereís a voice calling me
From an old rugged tree
And it whispers draw closer to Me.
Leave this world far behind
There are new heights to climb
And a new place in Me you will find.
For whatever it takes to draw closer to You Lord
Thatís what Iíll be willing to do;
For whatever it takes to be more like You,
Thatís what Iíll be willing to do.
Take the dearest things to me
If thatís how it must be
To draw me closer to Thee.
Let the disappointments come
Lonely days without the sun,
If through sorrow more like You I become.
Iíll trade sunshine for rain
Comfort for pain
Thatís what Iíll be willing to do,
For whatever it takes for my will to break
Thatís what Iíll be willing to do."
