Strength of the Weak
Be my strength
O Rock and strength
of all who who call upon Your Name.
Be the One who hears my silent cries
and sees my up-stretched hands.
Without You, without Your presence,
I will stumble into a merciless pit.
Without Your help
my life will look like one who has not been redeemed.
But I am yours
and You will hear my voice
though it be laced with tears.
My cries will not be ignored
The wicked will not drag me away.
Because You are my saving defense
You are the Shepherd of my life,
And I have nothing to fear.
You are the strength of the weak,
So in my weakness, I will trust in You.
