Father of all mankind
Author of goodness and mercy
Grateful in spirit, I offer thee all that I have
All that I am
And if I must pass through trial
Bearing a burden of grief
Stay thou near my side in my hour of need
Strengthen me
Strengthen me
Oh strengthen me

Father, in thee I live
Blessed and sustained by thy kindness
Giver of all I return to thee all I can give
All I possess
Strengthen my weary hands
Grant me endurance to serve thee
My spirit is willing, my flesh is weak,
Strengthen me
Strengthen me
Oh strengthen me

Thou art my strength and my song
Thou hast become my salvation
Tune thou my heart to thy purpose
Thee shall I praise
To thee shall I sing
And though sorrow’s cup be bitter
Thy will, not mine, be done
Until beyond tears I shall dwell with thee
Strengthen me
Strengthen me
Oh strengthen me!
