I Will Always Do My Best


Lord give me faith, please make me whole.

 Let me feel the power of Your love, deep within my heart

And deep within my soul.

Lord give me faith, to carry on, please give me strength

I pray You will make me strong.

I want You as my Saviour.

I want You as my Lord. I want You as my Redeemer

I want You as my God -

If you grant me my humble request,

Then I promise you my Lord, according to Your will,

I will always do my best.

G. Bell 2014
