Shane & Shane - Stronghold Lyrics

Stronghold Lyrics


I have not my own goodness, no I have no pure desire
For You wrote into existence all the faith that You require
I'm not leaning or supported I'm not helped up to stand
But I'm carried by You Jesus, carried in Your saving hands

How I need You just to need You
How I long to never long for another
I could have strength, I could be bold
But if I have not Your strong hold
Then I have nothing I have nothing at all

When my own heart condemns me You are greater than my heart
When the fear is overwhelming You are greater still by far
When the swells of doubt are rising and my faith's a distant thought
Just one whisper from You Jesus overcomes shouts from the dark

How I need You just to need You
How I long to never long for another
I could have strength, I could be bold
But if I have not Your strong hold
Then I have nothing I have nothing at all

And if I could see You, if I could touch You now
Still, I would not believe unless You taught me how
So my hands are open, my life is all poured out
Is this how You want me Lord? I'm waiting on You now
'Cause all understanding across the earth
Never could lead me to what I don't deserve
I needed death and I needed birth
And had I no longing, then how would I learn?

Still, I want to see You, I want to see You now
Is this how You want me Lord? I'm waiting on You now
I could have strength, I could be bold
But if I have not Your strong hold
Then I have nothing I have nothing at all
