There's a host of hurts we come across
None of which alike
From the air inside the birthing room
To the darkness where we die
Though I feel I'm just as strong as any man I know
I'm not able on my own

Carry round the secrets
Only heaven knows
Crawl into our darkened rooms where only victims go
Though I feel I'm strong enough to carry all this load
I'm not able on my own

All my actions, false or true
Selfish motives I will use
We were born with knives in hand
Trained to kill our fellow man
If we're not better than the rest
How will children do their best
Find your patience, find your truth
Love is all we have to lose

I'm not able on my own

    In this life there will be pain and heartache, but the victory is that jesus took all that pain and sin when he died for us on the cross. This is not a song of weakness. It is a moment of acceptance that we all have to come to. As people we can't do anything, but with christ we can do everything. He is my strength.
    "for everyone born of god overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. " (1 john 5:4 niv)

    We must submit our entire being and soul over to the holy spirt of jesus christ, for without him we can do nothiing! Left to ourselves... We will cave!

    Simple message. "but he said to me, 'my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ' therefore i will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that christ’s power may rest on me. " - 1 corinthians 12:9
