I Must Know I’m Weak

I thank you Lord, You are my God
My Lord in every way
That even in the smallest things
I see Your hand at play.
When illness or bereavement come
Or any dreadful thing
You hold back waves and keep me calm
To ease me through the storm.

For though I know You’re always there
According to Your Word
It seems that I must know I’m weak
Before You give me aid.

~

You are my strength when I am weak
You are my confidence
You are the only Friend I want
When nothing else makes sense.
You’re there with me when others fail
And no one else can help
I love and fear no earthly thing
When You are with me Lord.

For though I know You’re always there
According to Your Word
It seems that I must know I’m weak
Before You give me aid.
At times I have to fail the test
To feel the arms of God
To know how weak I really am
To realise His power.

“Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions,
in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”
[2 Corinthians 12:10]
