I am looking for an older version of this song, not the one recorded by TRUTH.
There is at least one other verse. Who wrote it, and is there sheet music or is there an accompaniment track for it?


Whatever It Takes

There's a voice calling me, from an old rugged tree
And He whispers draw closer to me
Leave this world far behind,
There are new heights to climb
And a new place in Me you will find

And whatever it takes, to draw closer to You Lord
That's what I'd be wiling to do
And whatever it takes, to be more like you
That's what I'd be willing to do

Take my houses and lands,
Take my dreams and my plans.
I place my who life in Your hands.
And if you call me someday,
To a land far away,
Lord, I'll go and Your will obey.

And whatever it takes to draw closer to You, Lord,
That's what I'll be willing to do.
And whatever it takes for my will to break,
That's what I'll be willing to do.

Here is another  verse to  "Whatever It Takes" by Lanny Wolfe

TAKE THE DEAREST THINGS TO ME, IF THAT'S HOW IT MUST BE
TO DRAW ME CLOSER TO THEE
LET THE DISSAPOINTMENTS COME,LONELY DAYS WITHOUT THE SUN
IF THROUGH SORROW MORE LIKE YOU I'LL BECOME.

Hi,
I wonder if the music is available online. The older version by that lady. I think she's called Melody or something. Let me know

This song was sung by the Amigo's and I believe they wrote this song. They use to travel with Charles and Francis Hunter Ministries.  I heard them sing this song at one of their meetings and they stated they wrote the song.

There are some corrections to the lyrics previously posted:

There's a voice calling me
From an old rugged tree
And it whispers, "draw closer to me"
Leave this world far behind
There are new heights to climb
And a new place in me you will find.

CHO:
For whatever it takes to draw closer to you, Lord
That's what I'll be willing to do.
For whatever it takes to be more like you
That's what I'll be willing to do.

Take my houses and lands
Change my dreams and my plans
For I'm placing my whole life in your hand.
And if you call me today
To a land far away
Lord I'll go and your will obey.

For whatever it takes to draw closer to you, Lord
That's what I'll be willing to do
For whatever it takes for my will to break
That's what I'll be willing to do.

Take the dearest thing in me
If that's how it must be
To draw me closer to you.
Let the disappointments come
Lonely days without the sun
If through sorrows more like you I'll become.

Back to Chorus:

CODA:
I'll trade sunshine for rain
Comfort for pain
That's what I'll be willing to do
For whatever it takes to be more like you
That's what I'll be willing to do.
