Surrender To Thee My Lord - Poem by Shankaran Kutty

I have seen many a rainbow my Lord
That you have painted with Love
I have seen the twinkling stars
You have strewn on the heavens above
I have drenched in the cool moonlight
Danced in the summer heat
And your presence by my side my Lord
Has made my life complete

I have known the joys of earthly love
And of parting, its intense pain
Have seen my dear ones yearn for me
Have felt their love slowly wane
Have seen the flowers in spring time bloom
Only to whither in time
Each step I stumbled, you held me my Lord
Have felt your love sublime

You gave me the joy of being born
With parents and siblings so dear
When in strife, gave me a friend
To wipe away my tear
You gave me the joys that love doth serve
And two sweetest angels, one can find
With your love and blessing forever my Lord
Our family you did bind

You have showered everything my Lord
All that my needs ever be
Then why do you hold me back from you
Why don’t you let me free
Why let me see the waning of love
Why let me wallow in hate
Haven’t I taken the path you have shown
Then why this sorrow in my fate

No more does dreams fill my sleep
For I have got more that I deserve
Just a prayer that at your feet
Give me a place to serve
Take my wealth, take my dreams
For no more joy to me they bring
Just give me a voice that I shall my Lord
Your glory, forever, may I sing

Those days of fun, the days of pain
And the joy of those rainy days
The love I yearned, the love denied
Those words of scorn, the words of praise
Take them away, for let me part
Take them away, Lord, they are thine
One last prayer, I surrender to thee
Accept my Lord, this life of mine
