Andrew Brunson

Worthy of my all

In 2016 Andrew Brunson, an American pastor living and working in Turkey, was arrested on false charges of terrorism. He spent more than two years in various Turkish prisons before he was finally released in 2018. Following his first court appearance and facing the prospect of life in prison Pastor Andrew composed this song in his prison courtyard.

 
 

Pastor Andrew Brunson
Worthy of My All

Written at Buca Prison in Turkey, Sep 10, 2017

You are worthy, worthy of my all
My tears and pain I lift up as an offering
Teach me to share in the fellowship of your suffering
Lamb of God, you are worthy of my all

You are worthy, worthy of my all
Adopted as a son, a brother to my King
Indeed, I will share in your glory if I share your suffering
Jesus, you are worthy of my all

You are worthy, worthy of my all
But my heart faints, drowned in sorrow, overwhelmed
Make me like you, Cross-bearer, persevering, faithful to the end
To stand the trial and receive the crown of life

You are worthy, worthy of my all
This is my declaration in the darkest hour
Jesus, the Faithful One who loves me, always good and true
You made me yours, you are worthy of my all

I want to be found worthy to stand before you on that day
With no regrets from cowardice, things left undone
To hear you say, “Well done, my faithful friend, now enter your reward”
Jesus, my Joy, you are the prize I’m running for

You are worthy, worthy of my all
You are worthy, worthy of my all
What can I give to the Son of God, who gave himself for me
Here I am, you are worthy of my all

Brunson A (2019) God’s Hostage, Milton Keynes, Authentic Media p249
