I must believe that just a memory now
Was the only way to know
That all those you love
Are just ripped away

And now we find the one to lead us
To a brand new day
Has this I must be with a brood of truth
Got to lead the way

Please God give me
The strength to live
(It's my charge to Keep)
Keep the sorrow
The fuel I need
(It's my charge to Keep)

And now we must wipe the tears away
Cover up are in the strength
Lost are those we can't replace
Who bring a louder faith

And all many lives I've seen him take
To bring justice on our way
We must never fault we must never fail
This is a charge to keep

Please God give me
The strength to live
(It's my charge to Keep)
Keep the sorrow
The fuel I need
(It's my charge to Keep)
