Strength in Weakness

They tell me to be strong,
But Lord, I feel so weak!
So this is just the very time
YOUR strength I need to seek.

My own resources, Lord,
Seem entirely to have fled,
And I begin to wonder why
This way my steps are led.

So tired and thirsty, Lord,
I've struggled for so long.
Now, as YOU fill my empty cup,
YOUR strength will make me strong.
