Renew My Strength

Tynea Lewis

My burdens pile up
as my daily duties increase.
I have few chances to get away,
to leave it all behind.
How long can I keep pushing on?
My feet are beginning to slip.
My balance has become unsteady.
I’m afraid of falling.

Renew my strength, O Lord.
You do not grow weary.
Increase my power
for I feel so weak.
Lift me up on wings
so I soar
like an eagle.
My hope is in you, Lord.
