The strength I have is not my own
It comes from Heaven’s throne.
I yield myself to God’s own will.
My life is not my own.
For I was bought with heavy price:
God’s only Son was slain
To pay the ransom for my life.
His death was for my gain.
Now His strength lives in my weak frame
And what I cannot do,
God’s strength makes up for all I lack
And He will see me through.
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Will never let me down.
I’m safe inside Their great embrace
Their righteousness, my crown.
I thank my God for His sweet grace,
His mercies, always new.
I know that though my strength may fail
My God is strong and true.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the © is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!
