STRENGTHEN MY FAITH LORD (A Song of Encouragement)

Strengthen My Faith Lord
It’s not by feeling but by faith Lord
It’s not by feeling but by faith
That this once guilty heart’s now safe
That this once guilty heart’s now safe
So I will praise You forever Lord
Praise You forever
Trust You forever
‘Cause You poured Your mercy
In and through me
Yes! You poured Love’s mercy through me

Chorus
So I’ll hold the shield of faith Lord
Close to my heart
Close to my heart
And if my arms grow weak and weary Lord
I know You’ll strengthen me
I know You’ll strengthen me
You’ll place the hands of Your love
Over my unprotected heart

Strengthen my faith Lord
Strengthen my faith
When feelings overwhelm Lord
Draw me back to Your heart
And what Your word saith
‘Cause my faith is a gift Lord
A free gift given me
And there’s more for the asking
So Lord, may it increase and be
Forever, forever poured into me

I’ll praise You forever
I’ll trust You forever
‘Cause You poured Your mercy
In and through me
Yes! You poured Love’s mercy through me

Chorus
So I’ll hold the shield of faith Lord
Close to my heart
Close to my heart
And if my arms grow weak and weary Lord
I know You’ll strengthen me
I know You’ll strengthen me
You’ll place the hands of Your love
Over my unprotected heart

    • Skye … that is the sweetest comment … thank you so much. I know what you mean about keeping up (if you are referring to reading other’s blogs, that is!). There are so many wonderful, beautiful people out there, sharing love, tears, encouragement etc etc … most importantly sharing the love of the Jesus … it does become overwhelming trying to read everyone’s … sending hugs and love in return xxx
