Weakness


Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there.
(Matthew 4:1; NLT).

1. Son of Man,
You recollect our weakness:
Our tiredness, our frailty,
Our tears.

2. Son of Man,
You recognise our weakness:
Our stubbornness, our lack of faith,
Our fears.

3. Son of Man,
You understand our weakness:
Our selfishness, our ignorance,
Our sin.

4. Son of Man,
You fully grasp our weakness:
For you shared all the tests
We face within.
