In Your Hands Lyrics by Dawn M. Hamsher
As I walk in darkened places,
As I deal with pain so large,
I will lay my fears before you
Knowing that you are in charge.
Your plans are hidden from us.
We don't know what's in store,
But your glory shines in all this
Even through a closed door.
Lord, I call on you. Do you hear me?
Lord, I call on you. Come surround me.
In your hands, I'm seeking refuge from a world that is so cold.
Wrap me in your warm embrace; rest me on your strong hold.
Lord, we call on you. Do you hear us?
Lord, we call on you. Come surround us.
In your hands, We're seeking refuge from a world that is so cold.
Wrap us in your warm embrace; rest us on your strong hold.
I struggle for understanding.
Why do bad things come our way?
Give me peace in every moment,
Trusting you for each new day
We cry out to you for healing,
Praying far into the night.
No matter what the outcome,
Hold us close and be our light.
I feel your hands upon me,
Giving strength when I have none;
Lifting up my weary shoulders
Through all that life has done.
What a blessing you are to us.
For in you, we can confide.
We never have to be alone.
You are always by our side.
