If faith is the whole thing that holds

My life within you grace

Then faith I want to hold me close

Please God don’t turn your face

But even this amazing thing

Belief in Jesus Christ

Seems to be far beyond my strength

So Father give me life

Give faith to me to trust you God

Though you do strangest things

Your words are often lofty and

What of the pains life brings

Why would a man look up to you

When you don’t match his frame

Because deep down his soul must know

His frame is broken shame.

You are to great to understand

But God you offer hope

So I’ll believe in you my Lord

My soul will learn to cope 

Cope with the things beyond my mind

Cope with your hidden will

Because in all of these my Lord

You must remain good still
