I thank you for the blessing of Your word
I’m overjoyed by the touch of its grace
Nothing fulfills my life as its blessing
Nothing will satisfy me more than its taste

I am moved within my soul to shed deep tears
As my happiness gives birth to lasting smiles
My joy expresses itself in inexpressible ways
For the wealth I have in You is so worthwhile

Who am I to be loved by someone so special
My gracious King who created all my eyes see
One like me of low esteem in this large world
But one who by Your love from sin was set free

My flesh once degraded, torn apart and broken
When I was tormented daily by Satan’s minions
But I found hope in Your Living word my God
As my spirit by Your grace is now strengthened

For there is such a healing power in Your word
When spoken, I found my life became very blessed
Finding in You a wonderfully sweet enduring grace
As your power made me strong within my weakness

I will lift up Your name earnestly each day Lord
So many who see me daily will now surely know
Even though weakness by sight abounds in my body
It is overcome always by my God who loves me so

His gift of salvation is alive in my life
In each and every step I now take with my God
And I will boast daily in my many afflictions
Knowing I am made strong by His awesome love.

(January 1977)
2 Corinthians 12:9-10

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore
I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses,
so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why,
for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults,
in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For
when I am weak, then I am strong.
