If I trust myself
and in my strength
I'll be in the desert
with nothing to drink
I'll live in the wilderness
so far and so alone
and I won't help myself
so hot and yet so cold (Jeremiah 17:5-6)

I choose not to lean
on my own understanding
I acknowledge You in my ways
and You direct me (Proverbs 3:5-6)

I'll be like a tree by the river
when I put my trust in You (Jeremiah 17:7-8)
I'll be like a coal in the fire (Isaiah 54:16)
when I put my hope in You

If my heart departs
and I turn away
then I will be cursed
from the absence of my faith (Hebrews 11:6)
Lord without your help
I'm drowning in the sea (Hebrews 11:29)
and I won't help myself
I can't move and I can't breathe
