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.
