IX. Your grace alone, O Lord, has brought me far

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us 2 and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith. -Hebrews 12:1-2

Your grace alone, O Lord, has brought me far:

To heights I never dared to hope I’d climb,

Though journey has not lacked in wound and scar.

I quake now before mountains more sublime.

If efforts past proved so beyond my power,

And left me torn and battered, weak and pale,

The thought of higher crags brings me to cower:

Yet higher crags now loom for me to scale.

I need Your strength, for I am cold and numb.

I trust when I am weak, then am I strong,

For lie ‘twould be to think to where I’ve come

I brought myself, or dragged myself along.

Your faithful love and wisdom never balk.

Lift me once more. In them I pray I’ll walk.
