Ruth Scarbrough

There is a strength

makes you able to master

heartaches and trials

or the greatest disaster.

You won't always win;

You might bow to defeat,

but there is a strength

puts you back on your feet.

Though your body grows frail

and you must suffer pain,

there is a strength

that is always the same.

It doesn't depend on

how much you can cope

for you hold a treasure

that renews all your hope.

Ever there when you need it

and seeing you through,

your strength comes from God

who lives within you.
