Not by Might
by Psalty



It’s not by might, nor by power,
but by my Spirit.
It’s not by might, nor by power,
Sayeth the Lord.

We like to think, that we can handle problems on our own.
We buckle down, apply the steam,
work our hands down to the bone,
But when we’ve gone around in circles,
and there’s no place left to turn,
The Lord reminds us quietly, there’s a lesson to be learned.

We try and try in our own strength to make things come out right
We think and plan, and organize; and try with all our might
But when we’ve finally reached the bottom
The end of all our rope
The Lord reminds us once again in me you’ll find your hope.
