Strong

Anne Wilson

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Strong, trying to make 'em all think I’m strong
Yeah, the face I keep putting on says I ain't tired
But these tear-stained eyes ain't lying
’Cause hard, nobody told me life could be so hard
A weary soul with a worn out heart that's barely beating
But every time I get that feeling

[Chorus]
I hit my knees with my hands held high
Saying, "Dear Lord, Jesus, you know I can't do this on my own
I can't do this on my own"
Lord knows I've tried but I'm good at falling down
Thank God you're good at picking me up off the ground
The world's gonna try to break me
But I know the one who makes me
Strong

[Verse 2]
Strong, like my daddy always told me so
There’s a place you can always go when you got nothing
And then he handed me the one thing
That’s strong, doesn't matter how old it gets
There’s power in the words in red in this old Bible
And when I'm desperate for revival

[Chorus]
I hit my knees with my hands held high
Saying, "Dear Lord, Jesus, you know I can't do this on my own
I can't do this on my own"
Lord knows I’ve tried but I'm good at falling down
Thank God you're good at picking me up off the ground
The world's gonna try to break me
But I know the one who makes me
Strong
Oh-oh, strong

[Bridge]
I'm strong when I got nothing
I'm strong even when I'm weak
'Cause the strong arms of my Savior
Are holding on to me

[Chorus]
I hit my knees with my hands held high
Saying, "Dear Lord, Jesus, you know I can't do this on my own
I can't do this on my own"
Lord knows I've tried but I'm good at falling down
Thank God you're good at picking me up off the ground
The world's gonna try to break me
But I know the one who makes me
Strong
But You make me strong

[Outro]
Oh, this world ain't gonna break me
'Cause I know the one who makes me
Strong
