Lyrics

GOD MAKE ME STRONG ENOUGH
Words and Music by James Keith Norman

VERSE #1:
Funny how the years
quickly come and go.
Almost seems that goodbye
is right there with hello.
One day your baby’s crawlin’.
Soon she’s a woman fallin’
in love, ready to fly away.

VERSE #2:
Just inside the church,
she and I stand.
We walk down the aisle
arm in arm, hand in hand.
Then I’m giving her away
And silently I pray
that I can make it through
this day.

CHORUS:
God make me strong enough to let her go
without her seeing now how much this hurts.
I will shed my tears
when she is miles away from here.
God make me strong enough.

VERSE #3:
Vows are spoken.
Speeches are made.
The bride and groom, they dance
as their song is played.
Then my little girl and I
we dance till by and by
she kisses me
and steps away.

CHORUS:
God make me strong enough to let her go
without her seeing now how much this hurts.
I will shed my tears
when she is miles away from here.
God make me strong enough.

BRIDGE:
She throws the bouquet
and just before they drive away
she finds me and whispers, “Daddy, thank you for everything
you’ve done for me my whole life.”

CHORUS:
God make me strong enough to let her go
without her seeing now how much this hurts.
I will shed my tears
when she is miles away from here.
God make me strong enough.
