HE WILL GIVE ME POWER, by            
First Line: Oh, I am weak; a man am I of clay
Last Line: As strong and firm as some great granite tower.
Subject(s): Cavaliers


OH, I am weak; a man am I of clay,
Who has strange fevers racing in his blood
Which drive me panic-like from paths of good;
For I am son of sires who plunged in play,
Knowing that they, at least, no price should pay;
Bold cavaliers who with mad kings have stood
In revel till their stock of fatherhood
Passed half polluted to the present day.
Yet though I 'm bound in chains which will not break,
But which shall ever bind me hour by hour,
Still have I faith He will in mercy take
My hand in His, and give me of His power,
And through the stormy years my manhood make
As strong and firm as some great granite tower.
