Poems About Strength

Be encouraged and inspired by theses poems about strength. Where do we draw our strength from?

Our determination and fortitude can give us the strength we need to accomplish goals and not give up. Being able to persevere and overcome challenges move us in the direction we need to go.

And then there are times in our lives when we need strength just to make it through the day. Life challenges can overwhelm us. We need higher strength and we turn to God to give us the energy that we need.

We hope these poems give you words to encourage you and draw strength from.

Poet: Mrs. M. A. Kidder

Strength for to-day is all that we need,
As there will never be a to-morrow;
For to-morrow will prove but another to-day,
With its measure of joy and sorrow.

Then why forecast the trials of life
With much sad and grave persistence.
And wait and watch for a crowd of ills
That as yet have no existence?

Strength for to- day; what a precious boon
For earnest souls who labor —
For the willing hands that minister
To the needy friend and neighbour.

Strength for to-day, that the weary hearts
In the battle for right may quail not,
And the eyes bedimmed by bitier tears
In their search for life may quail not

Strength for to-day, in house and home
To practise forbearance sweetly;
To scatter kind words and loving deeds,
Still trusting in God completely.

Strength for to-day is all that we need,
As there never will be a to-morrow;
For to-morrow will prove but another to-day.
With its measure of joy and sorrow.

It Takes Strength  & Courage
Poet: Unknown

It takes strength to be firm,
It takes courage to be gentle.

It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.

It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubt.

It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to feel a friend's pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to endure abuse,
It takes courage to stop it.

It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on another.

It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.

It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.

A Little Prayer
Poet: Unknown

If any little word of mine
May make a life the brighter;
If any little song of mine
May make a heart the lighter,
God help me speak the little word.
And take my bit of singing,
And drop it in some lonely vale
To set the echoes ringing.

If any little love of mine
May make a life the sweeter;
If any little care of mine
May make a friend's the fleeter;
If any little lift may ease
The burden of another,
God give me love, and care and strength
To help my toiling brother.

Grant Me
Poet: Edgar A. Guest

Grant me, 0 Lord, the strength today
For every task which comes my way.
Cover my eyes and make me blind
To petty faults I should not find.

Open my eyes and let me see
The friend my neighbor tries to be.
Teach me; when duty seems severe,
To see my purpose shining clear.

Let me at noon time rest content
The half-day bravely lived and spent.
And when the night slips down, let me
Unstained and undishonored be.

Grant me to live this one day through
Up to the best that I can do.
