God's strength and my weakness

When my strength is too weak
And my weakness too strong,
It is Jesus whom I seek
And for Him that I long.

When my weakness is too strong
And my strength is too weak,
His deliverance is my song
And of His power I will speak.

For when in my strength I boast
And in my flesh I trust,
I am overwhelmed the most
Until confess I must;

That I can do nothing
When I do it on my own,
But I can do everything
When I trust Him alone.

I pray that in my weakness
He would perfect His strength,
And I would trust Him in meekness
Through all of life's length:

So that to Him be all glory
And all joy may be mine,
And my life be a story
Of His power divine.
