Make Me Strong

performed by Sami Yusuf

Lyrics:
I know I’m waiting
Waiting for something
Something to happen to me
But this waiting comes with
Trials and challenges
Nothing in life is free
I wish that somehow
You’d tell me out aloud
That on that day I’ll be ok
But we’ll never know cause
That’s not the way it works
Help me find my way

My Lord show me right from wrong
Give me light make me strong
I know the road is long
Make me strong
Sometimes it just gets too much
I feel that I’ve lost touch
I know the road is long
Make me strong

I know I’m waiting
Yearning for something
Something known only to me
This waiting comes with
Trials and challenges
Life is one mystery
I wish that somehow
You’d tell me out aloud
That on that day you’ll forgive me
But we’ll never know cause
That’s not the way it works
I beg for your mercy

My Lord show me right from wrong
Give me light make me strong
I know the road is long
Make me strong
Sometimes it just gets too much
I feel that I’ve lost touch
I know the road is long
Make me strong

If you’ve listened close to silence,

I’m sure you have heard,

The gentle constant ringing,

In the space between two words,

When you really pay attention,

You find it’s not just in your head,

But instead is whispers of the words,

The world has left unsaid.

It’s “I love you” left unspoken,

And a mother’s last goodbye,

That she never had the chance to say,

As she watched her daughter die,

It’s forgiveness never given,

And a “sorry” left too late,

That would have saved a best friend’s life,

If they’d known it could not wait,

It’s a phrase that could have helped them,

And it’s secrets that could heal,

It’s words from those too scared to say,

The truth of how they feel,

But you have an advantage,

For you’re still alive to speak,

Words that could help save a life,

Or give strength to someone weak,

So may you never leave unspoken,

Words the whole world ought to hear,

Before they just become the ringing,

In another person’s ear.
