God has been strongly impressing upon me my complete and utter dependence on Him and I woke up this morning with this song in my head. My mom taught this one to me and it has been a blessing over the years.
I didn't realize until today, however, that the lyrics are a bit newer and more of a gospel song than a hymn. Myron LeFevre wrote these lyrics when he was 17 years old and it was published and recorded by Elvis Presley in 1963. Later the Gaithers would sing it, too.
I typically don't quote more modern texts here, not because I don't like them, but because I'd rather play it safe in the copyright department. I may be paranoid, but here's the copyright, just in case!
