I praise you that in my waiting
you renew my strength
like that of an eagle’s,
soaring in your Spirit.
I praise you for a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind,
that I place in your capable hands, your strong care.
Though some may trust in their own strength,
might, intelligence, connections, and power,
I remember you and will trust in you alone.
Though there are heartaches and sufferings
I don’t understand,
things that have not gone the way I’d hoped or planned,
I place my trust in you.
Lord you are good,
your mercy and love endures forever,
your loving kindness chases down every heartbroken sinner
When I trusted in idols, in my own strength,
I bowed down under the yoke of the enemy
and was broken.
But now I put my trust in you,
and I will rise up and stand strong,
firm in my faith,
with power in my spirit, soul, and body,
so that when I fall seven times, I will get right back up,
bold as a lion,
unhindered by shame and sin.
I praise you for your blood,
for the transaction of my death for your eternal life.
I bless you Lord,
you alone are worthy, worthy, worthy,
of all my praise.
