My Weakness

My Weakness
Poet: Greta Zwaan, ©2012


In my weakness I am strong, for it is not I;
What I have I do not own, even should I try.
Born a pauper, not born free - having no control;
No concept of whom I am, searching in my soul.

Weary of my constant toil, what do I achieve?
Daily it's the same routine; hardships never leave.
Life is puzzling at its best, nothing is secure,
All my efforts seem in vain; trials to endure.

Why I do the things I do I can't understand,
Unseen powers are my source, I'm at their command.
Still small voices in my head, prod me, drive me on:
There's a purpose in your life, hope is never gone.

Remember now, in days of youth, you are not your own;
Tread in paths of righteousness, never walk alone.
All my strength is still minute if God does not bless,
If I prosper, by His grace, then I must confess:

God is sovereign, God is just, I am but of clay,
Daily I rely on Him, He's my hope and stay.
