My Grace Is Sufficient For Thee

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me (2 Corinthians 12:9).

1.  Oppressed with unbelief and sin,

Fightings without, and fears within;

While earth and hell, with force combined,

Assault and terrify my mind.

2.  What strength have I against such foes,

Such hosts and legions to oppose?

Alas! I tremble, faint, and fall,

LORD save me, or I give up all.

3.  Thus sorely pressed I sought the LORD,

To give me some sweet cheering word;

Again I sought, and yet again,

I waited long, but not in vain.

4.  O! ’twas a cheering word indeed!

Exactly suited to my need;

“Sufficient for thee is my grace,

Thy weakness my great pow’r displays.”

5.  Now despond and mourn no more,

I welcome all I feared before;

Though weak I’m strong, though troubled blest,

For CHRIST’S own pow’r shall on me rest.

6.  My grace would soon exhausted be,

But his is boundless as the sea;

Then let me boast with holy Paul,

That I am nothing, CHRIST is all.

-John Newton
