Your Love Is Strong

By Elton Smith, Steve Israel and Larry Holder

CCLI Number: 3965405

This song started on a picnic bench at a state park in Virginia. My family and I were on vacation, 1000 miles from home. It was very early in the morning and I was the only one awake. We were planning to drive north into the Washington DC area (where Steve Israel lives) that day, but we had received unhappy news from the Israel family. Barbara's father had been in an accident and wasn't expected to live. So I sat there, thinking about the accident, the clouds threatening to rain on my guitar, my sleeping family, how frail life is... and I wrote this melody, along with a few of the words. Several days later we were at Steve's house and he arrived back from the funeral. We were tired, but we took a few minutes to work on the music and lyrics together, making some significant enhancements. After the vacation was over, Larry joined us in the effort by completing the lyrics. I hope the song is a blessing to you. - Elton, June 14, 2002

(Introduction)

(Verse 1)
Though I am weak
Though I am frail
There is one thing I know,
Your love is strong.
Though storms may come
And plans may fail,
There is one thing I know,
Your love is strong.

(Chorus)
No one can take me from Your hand.
Forever on this Rock I'll stand.
And in those times my strength is gone,
There is one thing I know
Your love is strong.
Yes, in those times my strength is gone,
There is one thing I know
Your love is strong.

(Bridge)
Eternal joy is mine
Because I know Your love is strong
Your mercy lifts me up
And gently carries me along
In-to Heav-en.

(Verse 2)
Through Summer's heat
And Winter's cold,
There is one thing I know
Your love is strong.
As day by day
My life unfolds,
There is one thing I know
Your love is strong.

(Repeat Chorus)
No one can take me from Your hand.
Forever on this Rock I'll stand.
And in those times my strength is gone,
There is one thing I know
Your love is strong.
Yes, in those times my strength is gone,
There is one thing I know
Your love is strong.

(Instrumental Ending)

This is my song today, too. The warfare has been strong but my Lords' love for me is stronger. Thank God!
