Great Courage is Never Enough … NOT EVER

Strength failed me at crucial times
Courage flew away from me
When I met my Goliath

I had read the story of David in the Bible
I thought he was a man of courage
Who rejoiced to fight

Little did I know that
What he had was more than mere courage
He had a Great Fortress to lean on

I now know from experience that
Mere courage cannot save a man
Human strength cannot help

Many times I mustered all my strength
I threw my weight behind my works
Forgetting that I was feather-weighted


Today I lean on the everlasting arms
I hope in His grace
I trust in the Sure Word

I found true love and swore
Never to accept half-hearted love ever again
To stay true to my heart

I found glorious grace and swore
Never to rest on my strength ever again
To lean on the Mighty Fortress

I found daily mercy, everlasting pardon and swore
Never to sin no more
To forever please Him who showed me great mercy

So help me God
