We Are Not As Strong As We Think We Are by Rich Mullins

Well, it took the hand of God Almighty
to part the waters of the sea,
but it only took one little lie
to separate you and me.
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are.

And they say that one day Joshua
made the sun stand still in the sky,
but I can't even keep these thoughts of you from passing by.
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are.

We are frail,
we are fearfully and wonderfully made;
forged in the fires of human passion,
choking on the fumes of selfish rage.
And with these our hells and our heavens
so few inches apart,
we must be awfully small
and not as strong as we think we are.

And the Master said their faith was
gonna make them mountains move;
but me, I tremble like a hill on a fault line
just at the thought of how I lost you.
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are.

We are frail,
we are fearfully and wonderfully made;
forged in the fires of human passion,
choking on the fumes of selfish rage.
And with these our hells and our heavens
so few inches apart,
we must be awfully small
and not as strong as we think we are.

And if you make me laugh,
I know I could make you like me,
'cause when I laugh I can be a lot of fun.
But we can't do that; I know that it is frightening.
What I don't know is why we can't hold on.
We can't hold on.

It took the hand of God Almighty
to part the waters of the sea,
but it only took one little lie
to separate you and me.
Oh, we are not as strong as we think we are.

When you love you walk on the water,
just don't stumble on the waves.
We all want to go there something awful,
but to stand there it takes some grace,
'cause oh, we are not as strong
as we think we are.

No, we are not as strong
as we think we are.

Walk on the water.
Walk on the water.
If we could just hold on;
Just hold on.
