Give me Strength


 
Give me strength to handle grief
Make it easier so there’s a welcome relief

Give me strength to handle pain
So that I can feel the sunshine through the rain

Give me strength to understand your mood
It takes more than I can handle when you brood

Give me strength to accept the real me
And all I have set out to be

Give me strength to have the courage
To live and love on life’s stage

Give me strength to stand with pride
When fate takes the other side

Give me strength to look for the good
In everyone and treat them as I should

Give me strength that when I lay down to sleep
I’ll trust the good Lord to save all those I love and safely keep
