But Not for Thee

But Not for Thee

R.S. Ghio

My path is only dimly lit

My home too far to see

My burden’s weight too great to bear

For me.  But not for Thee


My strength alone cannot suffice

To lift my life-worn head

I cannot stand from where I fell

I lie as one who’s dead


The hand that reaches out to me

Brought sight unto the blind

The shoulders bore a world of sin

My arms are weak.  Not Thine.


Thy voice a universe creates

Thy feet walk upon the sea

Thy power infinite and pure

Is strength enough for me.
