Verse 1

I do not fear what they think of me.

I'll never be who they claim I am.

They do not get to make a decree.

Through their biased thoughts, I can't be damned.

You're my only judge,

You know the truth.

I'm on my voyage,

Back to my Ruth.

Chorus

And I know I'm never alone,

My God will give me all the strength I need.

Don't let the pain turn me to stone,

Let me shine with compassion as I breathe.

Verse 2

I do not fear what they say to me.

I'll never be hurt by words of hate.

They don't have the power or the key,

To make me question this, it's too late.

You're my only hope,

Forgive my sins.

I found the rope,

I won't give in.

Chorus

And I know I'm never alone,

My God will give me all the strength I need.

Don't let the pain turn me to stone,

Let me shine with compassion as I breathe.

Bridge

When the ground caves in, I'll still be standing here.

Trying to spread a smile even through my tears.

That's all that defines me,

That's who I'll always be.

Chorus

And I know I'm never alone,

My God will give me all the strength I need.

Don't let the pain turn me to stone,

Let me shine with compassion as I breathe.
