He’ll put strength in me.

He whose voice could still the waves,
He is still the one who saves,
           He’ll put strength in me.

Though a weak and faltering saint,
I am worn and feeling faint,
           He’ll put strength in me.

Though I grovel in the dirt,
He won’t touch me for my hurt—
           He’ll put strength in me.

Having all-surpassing might,
Love is his supreme delight—
          He’ll put strength in me.

Though my efforts seem to fail,
By God’s grace I will prevail—
          He’ll put strength in me.
