It's hard, Father God
to stand on my own
and though I have tried to keep strong all alone
I find that in you
only you can atone

Sin is a weight
it bears down on the son
and weak he becomes, no victory won
and on his knees does he fall
completely undone

So rise up and claim
the strength offered you
and give praise to the one who sees you through
for only with him
can we all things do
