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."
