"THINGS THAT MADE ME STRONG"

Verse 1
For every single hill I've ever had to climb,
For every stone that ever bruised my feet,
For all those hard times wading through the muck and grime,
For blinding storms and burning heat,

Chorus 1
My heart sings [my heart sings] but a grateful song,
And I'll sing, [and I'll sing] I'll sing it all day long.
Those were the things that made me strong,
Those were the things that made me strong.

Verse 2
For all the heartache, every single tear,
For every gloomy day and any fruitless year,
For all the sorrow and all the pain,
And for all the hopes that lived in vain,

Chorus 2
I give You thanks, [give You thanks] for now I really know,
I give You praise, [give You praise] I thank You, Lord, I know
These were the things that helped me grow,
These were the things that helped me grow.

Bridge
-It's not the softer things in life
That made my will to strive.
-It's all those hard and trying times
That kept my will alive.
I want to walk Your chosen path,
Though at times I feel so weak.
I want a brave heart that's full of faith
And dares to climb the steep.

Chorus 2
My heart sings,-
And I'll sing,-
Those were the things that made me strong,

Chorus 2
I give You thanks, [give You thanks] for now I really know, [now I really know]
I give You praise, [give You praise] oh, I thank You, Lord, I know
These were the things that helped me grow,
These were the things that helped me grow.

Yes I'll sing it all day long,
These were the things that made me strong [made me strong],
These were the things that made me strong [made me strong],
These were the things that made me strong.
