Strength of My Heart

A longing that is felt deep within the soul.
The words they come, but does not comfort and console.
A hunger that can gnaw down to the core…
An aching that the heart can bear no more.

In moments when the weaknesses arise,
We pray that God will hear our cries.
In moments when the darkness hides the light,
We pray for ways to make it through the night…

Strength of my heart, return to me;
It is YOUR light that I long to see!
Strength of my soul, God hear my plea:
On YOUR path, let me return to THEE!

A hope that the soul has always known...
It echoes through with a low but sincere tone.
A fervent dream, once lost, can come alive.
In the depth of heart, oh how your dreams can thrive!

In moments when you feel God’s love surround,
You are uplifted in ways that will astound.
In moments when you praise with much acclaim,
Hear Him speak to you, for He knows us all by name!

Strength of my heart, my God shall reign;
He is the one who knows every pain!
Strength of my soul, uplifted high…
With every breath, I shall glorify!

The strength to endure; the strength to prevail!
The strength that I own was anchored by the nails.
The heart grows weak as the battles rage,
And redemption calls us to center stage.

But he took it all there upon the cross;
Jesus took it all as God felt the loss…
He made a way and prepared a place,
Knowing in the end, we shall see his face!

We will follow him, for he paved the way.
We will follow him to see the light this day!
Let your heart arise in such words of prayer,
And your soul arise as these words declare…

Strength of my heart, my Saviour lives;
Conviction in faith this knowledge gives!
Strength of my soul to know in the end,
The one who awaits is a beautiful friend!
