God Alone

God alone can give faith
But you can give witness.
God alone can give hope
But you can give others confidence.
God alone can give love
But you can teach others to love.
God alone can give peace
But you can bring unity.
God alone can give strength
But you can sustain the discouraged one.
God alone is the Way
But you can show God to others.
God alone is the Light
But you can set it alight in the eyes of others.
God alone is Life
But you can give others the desire to live.
God alone can do the impossible
But you can do your possible.
God alone is enough
But God also needs you!
