LGLG: "Let Go and Let God" Lyrics & Song Background

I regularly hear the phrase "Let go and let God" and as I heard the phrase and was developing concepts for my new album, I thought this would be a perfect idea to write around as there are so many times in life - through the ups and downs - when we, as Christians, need to step back and listen, observe and learn. Our tendency is to try to control everything in life when in reality, it is not possible. There is a common theme to a number of the songs on the album and it centers on Jeremiah 29:11 which states: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Sometimes, you just need to let go and let God...!

Let Go and Let God Lyrics

Written and Produced by Justin Honaman / John Carrozza Copyright 2010

V1 Runnin' 90 miles an hour livin' life out loud each day, Twists and turns in life make me wonder what to do and say, But at the end of the day, I give thanks and praise, For His blessings that set me free, On His rock, I stand and raise high my hands, And let go and let God lead me,

V2 On a bended knee I share my triumphs and my sorrows each day, Heavy burdens are lifted, sins forgiven and for those He gave, And at the end of the day, I give thanks and praise, For His blessings that set me free, On His rock, I stand and raise high my hands, And let go and let God lead me,

Chorus 1 Let go, (let go, yes, I gotta let go) n' let God, (let God, let God lead me) Let go, (let go, yes, I gotta let go) n' let God, (lead me so that I can be free) I gotta let go and let God lead me, I'm gonna let go and let God lead me,

V2 On a bended knee I share my triumphs and my sorrows each day, Heavy burdens are lifted, sins forgiven and for those He gave, And at the end of the day, I give thanks and praise, For His blessings that set me free, On His rock, I stand and raise high my hands, And let go and let God lead me,

Chorus 2 Let go, (let go, yes, I gotta let go) n' let God, (let God, let God lead me) Let go, (let go, yes, I gotta let go) n' let God, (lead me so that I can be free) I gotta let go and let God lead me, I'm gonna let go,

Bridge And when I'm tired and torn, In the darkness I pray, Open up my hands, to the light, Receive His grace,

Chorus 3 Let go, (let go, yes, I gotta let go) n' let God, (let God, let God lead me) Let go, (let go, yes, I gotta let go) n' let God, (lead me so that I can be free) I gotta let go and let God lead me, I've gotta let go,

...

Let go, (let go, yes, I gotta let go) n' let God, (let God, let God lead me) Let go, (let go, yes, I gotta let go) n' let God, (lead me so that I can be free) I gotta let go and let God lead me, I'm gonna let go and let God lead me,
