30 Day Challenge: Day 16, A song that makes you cry

Again, this one is a hard one. I honestly can't think of a specific song at this time. I've always been a sucker for a good sad country song. But I can't think of any specific one that makes me cry when I hear it.

Probably the only song I can think of that last made me almost cry was the last verse to "In the Bleak Midwinter":

What can I give him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
if I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
yet what I can I give him: give my heart.
This song just reminds me of my unwillingness to give God my all. I so often allow my own fears of rejection, and fear of getting hurt to keep me from giving my all to God. I mean I know as this song states, we can give him our hearts, and if we are saved we have done that. But I can't help but think of another possible line to this song "What can I give him? Give him all my life." If only that were the prayer of all of our hearts. That we would live our lives fully surrendered and willing to go, and do whatever God calls us to do.
