In My Weakness

My ears are dull of hearing,
But I can hear Your voice.
My eyes can’t see clearly,
Yet I fix my gaze on You.
My heart is poor and feeble,
But I carry Your words within me.
My hands lack strength to hold,
Yet I grasp Your promises tightly.
My legs are lame and twisted,
But I stand straight and tall
On the faith I have in You,
For this my soul knows well–
In my every weakness,
Your strength is making me whole.
