When we are weak and ask for help
And although our pride loathes same;
It is necessary for us to remove our defence
And to strip all pretences and games.
When we are weak we are strong
When we cry out to the Lord;
As He unburdens our troubled soul
And refreshes us with His word.
The ‘weak’ have had a revelation
That there’s something bigger than us,
And that we’re ultimately not in control
And merely a speck of dust.
People of faith are labelled as weak
But they’re strong in the spiritual realm;
Fighting the battle between light and darkness
Overcoming and not overwhelmed.
God uses the weak to confound the wise
To reveal His ultimate strength;
So that all glory and honour belong to Him
When we humble ourselves and repent.
To be lovingly gentle and kind
Is not a sign of weakness,
But rather a virtue and a strength within
That exhibits humility and meekness.
There is much strength in humility
As God exalts the humble,
And humbles the exalted indeed
When for their own sake makes them stumble.
Because the proud believe they’re always strong
And for no need of a Savior;
It is exhibited in their attitudes
And ultimately in their behaviour.
God has amazing ways
Of humbling the proud indeed,
And all lofty and all haughty thoughts
When deception the mind will feed.
God gently lifts the wounded soul
And will pour love and hope within;
When we cry out for His assistance
And repent of all our sin.
