This quietly strong, reflective hymn is one of Robin Mark’s most well known songs, written in collaboration with Jennifer Atkinson.
Its words pick up on the universal human experience of ambition and hope, and say – very simply – that by surrendering our “ambitions, hopes and plans” into Jesus’ hands, we will experience the freedom that comes ultimately from God’s love and grace.
