You Are My Strength

by Carla Robertson

Lord, you are the strength I need
You are my shadow, and you are my guide.
You are the rock that I stand on,
the tree that lets me lean
You are the strength in me.

Your words of comfort
Are arms that wrap around me to keep me warm.
You are the strength I need
that keeps me going,
the strength that keeps me alive.
Your love and joy I need to keep on smiling
You are the strength in me.

Your hands hold me up
when I begin to crumble
Your words of love are
Your arms that give me hugs.

Your angels of hope
keep me from doubting
Your smile that I cannot see
keeps me from frowning
And peace and patience
keeps me from leaving
all the sadness that fill this world.
You are the strength I need.

Even though you can't be seen
except in our hearts,
You are my strength amd my best friend.
You are my Lord
Your death set me free
when I opened my heart to you.

Your eyes read me heart
Your ears hear my cries
as you wrap me with your
Love, Comfort, and Understanding.

You are the strength I need
when I begin to crumble and fall
So, you take me and guide me the best that you can.

You are my strength
while I give you my heart
You are my strength
when your life saved my soul
You saved my life
You are the strength in me.
You are all the strength I will need.
