The Blessings of Weakness
by Russell Kelfer


Oh, the blessing of weakness,
The joy that will be ours,
When God takes these useless weeds
And turns them into flowers.

When God takes this “average” soul

Who has no claim to fame,
And, filling it with His great power,
Brings glory to His name.

Oh, the blessing of weakness,
When we have naught to give,
Then God moves in and men see Him
And we begin—to live!
