A. W. Marston

LORD, I am very helpless,

I have no might

To think, or speak, or labour;

No strength to fight.


Yet, since Thy Word declares it,

It must be true

That in Thee I am mighty

All things to do.


Then, Lord, I can be victor

O’er every foe;

O’er every sin that daily

Besets me so.


I can speak out for Thee, Lord;

For Thou each day

Wilt give me by Thy Spirit

The words to say.


I can be always shining,

At home, abroad;

I can be what Thou willest,

And all for God.


In Thee I can do all things,

And yet not I;

But Thou wilt live within me,

And I will die.
