In His Hand
"In his hand is the life of every living
thing and the breath of all mankind"
"I came that they might have life, and
have it more abundantly" 2
"As the Father loves Me, so I also love
you; remain in My love" 3
"Peace I leave with you, my peace I
give to you...Do not let your hearts be troubled
or afraid." 4
Held In Place
In His hand, I place my cross;
He empties me of self and sin.
In His hand, I am but dross
Purified by His flame within.
In His hand, I am at peace
Knowing that I am forgiven.
In His Hand, my joy won't cease:
Savouring a taste of heaven.
In His hand, my heart is still;
Basking in His glorious light.
In His hand, I have my fill:
He is my being! He is my flight!
His hand holds me in my place;
Secured 'til I behold His Face.
