“I Surrender,” Ensign, Apr. 1999, 5

I Surrender

He will not compel us

To be conquered, but

It is in the

Conquering of ourselves

That we win our

Battles best and

Achieve peace,

Not fighting against

The process of

Becoming, but

Burying our

Weapons of resistance

In complete surrender

And obedience.

Thus giving place

Within ourselves

For the only worthy

Offering that will please

Our Conquering King—

That of a broken heart,

And a contrite spirit.
