Your Hands

A dear friend - who I miss terribly - shared this song with me last year, and it was one of the best musical gifts I recieved. It brought me such comfort during so many different times.  It came to me this week as the pain in my mouth reached unberable ammounts, but it's meaning is so much bigger than that.

We all have unanswered prayers and trouble that we wish wasn't there. Ultimately, through the muddy waters filled with confusion and doubt, and even pain - we never, ever, ever, ever leave God's Hands...  What a wonderful promise!

"I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand."  John 10:28 





I have unanswered prayers
I have trouble I wish wasn't there
And I have asked a thousand ways
That You would take my pain away
That You would take my pain away

I am trying to understand
How to walk this weary land
Make straight the paths that crookedly lie
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine



When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave Your hands

When You walked upon the Earth
You healed the broken, lost, and hurt
I know You hate to see me cry
One day You will set all things right
Yea, one day You will set all things right

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave Your hands

Your hands
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still
Your hands that shape the world
Are holding me, they hold me still

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave You when...

When my world is shaking
Heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave...
I never leave Your hands
