I thought I had it all
I was convinced I needed no change
I saw all this pain around me
Instead of helping, I simply sang
An ancient tune
Of our selfish ways
Like we knew our life
And that we'd live every day
Who are we to be arrogant?
About things we didn’t contribute to
And when I realized this
It was the day I learned the truth

How wrong was I
To forget what's truly important
To dwell on the petty
While completely self-absorbent
Soon it all came tumbling
Down the hill known as life
I was knocked to the ground
And stuck in my side was a knife
Where are these voices coming from?
They are tempting and dark
In my own self-destruction
I called to you, the beautiful Lark

I cried, where have you gone?
Why must I endure this pain?
In my own stupidity,
I ignored you calling my name
Thrice I thus continued,
Oh, I think it's the end!
You truly challenged me
'Caused me to break and bend
Once more you spoke softly
"My grace is sufficient for you"
"For my power is perfect in weakness,"
This will make you refreshed and renewed


Trust me, trust what I do
Because I promise you
I will make you stronger
Just wait a little bit longer
It will soon be short
So I told this horde
Of people in this land
What may seem like a mountain
Is just a grain of sand
My weakness made me stronger
And this is His plan
To make you less of a sinner
And more into an image of Him


So you may profess this
Throughout your days
But to delight in humility
And not your boastful ways
So to you who don't believe,
Say what you will about me
But just know I delight
In the insults you throw upon me
I have seen a great light
That illuminates my whole life
Continue with your evil deeds
For nothing will cause me strife

For when I am weak,
Then I am strong,
I'll be leaving here soon,
To dwell in my true home.
I'll be leaving here soon,
To be with the Son.
