STRONG LOVE

I never thought I'd be so low
Reachin' up from this lonely place
I never thought I'd bear the pain
Of mistakes I can't erase
Content in my self-righteouness
Never feeling pain with those who'd fallen
Now I'm feeling helplessness
And needing one more chance to try again

Only your strong love can carry me through
When my heart is weak
And I'm cryin' out to you
Only your gentle hands are strong enought to hold
A trembling, wounded heart
That's breaking in two
Your strong but gentle love is what I need

A mother cares so tenderly
For her baby's every need
Yet the power of her love is strong
Overcoming anything
Now here I am a little child
Longing for a gentle touch to soothe me
Askin' for my Father's arms
To pick me up and love away the pain

Only your strong love can carry me through
When my heart is weak
And I'm cryin' out to you
Only your gentle hands are strong enought to hold
A trembling, wounded heart
That's breaking in two
Your strong but gentle love is what I need

There is no strength left in me to call on
No righteous deed to prove myself to you
I just need your grace to cover me
So come now and sweep over me
I need a strong love only you can give

Only your strong love can carry me through
When my heart is weak
And I'm cryin' out to you
Only your gentle hands are strong enought to hold
A trembling, wounded heart
That's breaking in two
