lyrics

GOD NEVER GIVES US MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE
Andy and Robin Kaufmann / Darden Smith

Two kids on the Army train
We'd settle down then we're gone again
Just get home, you're going back
Loaded up with different packs
One goes away, one stays home
Trying to connect on the telephone

We never knew that we were that strong
But it's only when life goes wrong
You see how much you can take
And still stay standing
God never gives us more than we can handle

Twelve houses in twenty-one years
Three kids and a million tears
Not knowing the words to say
Missed birthdays and holidays
Being afraid to watch the news
Trying not to get numb to what we live through

We never knew that we were that strong
But it's only when life goes wrong
You see how much you can take
And still stay standing
God never gives us more than we can handle
God never gives us more than we can handle

One foot in front of the other
Everyday we get a little bit closer
We don't know what tomorrow brings
After all we've been through
Baby we can handle anything

We never knew that we were that strong
Cause it's only when life goes wrong
See how much we can take
And we're still standing
God never gives us more than we can handle
God never gives us more than we can handle
