Security?

I have earned His favor.
I have followed His commands.
I have earned His favor.
See the riches in my hand.

I have done what’s in my power.
It’s in my strength I trust.
I have done what’s in my power.
And that must be enough.

But what is this the Master says?
These words on which I fall?
This is what the Master says,
That I must give up all.

This my heart can’t understand.
It’s risky to let go.
This my heart must understand.
And heaven there will grow.

For security I sought on earth
And thought that I had found.
But security that’s found on earth
Is not on solid ground

True safety rests in God alone
No matter what the task.
True safety found in God alone
It’s for this grace I ask
