Whenever My Heart Feels Its Weakest

“God has said, ‘I will never fail you. I will never abandon you'” (Hebrews 13:5b).

Whenever my heart feels its weakest,
Whenever I want to give in,
My eyes will return to my Savior,
My thoughts to His comforts again.
Temptations attack in my weakness,
Despair seeks to rise from my stress,
But God is my Strength and my Refuge,
Who works all things out for the best.

Whenever my pain is its greatest,
Wherever my weakness is strong,
May I seek the help of my Savior,
Who stays by my side all along.
The tempter is watching to harm me,
To tell me I’m weak and alone,
But God works His will through my failure,
And plants in me strength to go on.

Whenever my heart feels its weakest,
God gives all the strength that I need.
Wherever I stagger and stumble,
He comes to support and to lead.
Whenever I feel most defeated,
I yet can rely on my Friend,
My Savior and Helper and Comfort,
Whose Strength is my Strength to the end!

When Christ Works in Me

“But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out his special favor on me—and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by his grace” (1 Corinthians 15:10).

It often seems all life is toil and striving;
In my own power, so few results I see,
But when I hear God’s call, and I give Him my all,
Work goes right, when Christ works in me.

It often seems my work is going nowhere;
In my own power, there may no value be:
But empowered by my Lord, and indwelt by His Word,
Work goes far, when Christ works in me.

It often seems fatigue will overcome me:
I fall and fail, and stumble to my knee;
But when God holds me high, I can soar to the sky:
Work is grand, when Christ works in me.

It often seems achievement will die with me,
My time a speck against eternity:
But where God’s strength is sure, all I do will endure:
Work will last, when Christ works in me.
