Giver of Strength

Anxieties and responsibilities on my shoulders
Driving me further and further into the earth.
I am not strong enough
To sustain all of life's toil and strife.

Stress of the world attacking my faith
Feeling like I'm losing this battle.
I am not strong enough
To carry through this life on my own.

I hear of the One who lovingly snatches all hopelessness and distress away.
Will He give me, the sinner, peace?
I am not strong enough,
But He is.

Now I do not fear life and its uncertainty,
For now I am held secure by the all-powerful One.
I am not strong enough,
But I do not have to be.

Hope and peace captivate me.
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
He will never leave me or forsake me.
What can I do apart from Him?
