We are strong in our weakness
More than we’ll ever know…
When we allow Almighty God
His strength upon us to bestow.
There is power in humility
That works behind the scenes,
As God exalts the humble
And humbles the exalted it would seem.
There’s much strength in kindness
Since it can transform a life;
As it resurrects from darkness
Into God’s everlasting light.
There is power in our love
With a foundation of pure motives,
As it strengthens the most feeble soul
And it’s where miracles are noticed.
There is strength in our silence
When we know whether or not to speak,
When we learn to become wise
And God’s promptings we do seek.
The world’s strength does not compare
With God’s definition of ‘strong’
Since society’s ways are always opposite
And in God’s ways they don’t belong.
To be strong is to be ‘weak’
And by God’s grace to understand,
That without God we are nothing
And that all is in His hands.
He’s our strong fortress and our tower
Our help when in distress;
He gives us capabilities
And heals us from our mess.
He strengthens the feeble knees
When we cry from our heart;
He listens to our every prayer
His love will never part.
As we rely solely on His strength
We’ll achieve eternal goals,
As He guides us and He leads us
So His life in us unfolds.
