Verse 1:
C/G                       G
      I'm weak but I'm strong
C/G                       G
       I'm helpless but helped now
C/G                      G
      I'm struggling but I
C/G                 G
      Consider it joy for I know
             C/G                 G
That You're with me and You're for me
         C/G                          G
And You didn't just look down from heaven above
         C/G                G
But You came down and You found me
       C/G                   G                    C2   G/B   Am7     C2
I surrendered to mercy and gave myself up and I'm fi - na - lly   free
Chorus:
G                Gmaj7   C2            G
  And now You're with me the yoke is easy
            Gmaj7     C2     G/B    Am7    G
The load is heavy but ligh - ter    to   bear
           Gmaj7    C2            G
Now You're with me  the yoke is easy
           Gmaj7      C2    G/B   Am7   G
The road is narrow but I   find  You there
Verse 2:
You are strength for the weak
You're the refugee's refuge
Open arms at the cross
Tell of welcome and love and of rest
For the weary and the lonely
And the hungry of heart find a place they can eat
And the journey looks costly
But to live now is Christ and to die would be gain for I'm heavenly bound

I'M WEAK BUT I'M STRONG
I'm helpless but helped now
I'm struggling but I consider it joy
For I know that You're with me
And You're for me
And You didn't just
Look down from heaven above
But You came down
And You found me
I surrendered to mercy
And gave myself up
And I'm finally free

And now You're with me
The yoke is easy
The load is heavy
But lighter to bear
Now You're with me
The yoke is easy
The road is narrow
But I find You there


You are strength for the weak
You're the refugee's refuge
Open arms at the cross
Tell of welcome and love and of rest
For the weary and the lonely
And they hungry of heart
Find a place they can eat
And the journey looks costly
But to live now is Christ
And to die would be gain
For I'm heavenly bound
