Heb. 10:25 “... let us encourage one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

My Times are in Thy Hand

Author Unknown

I’m glad my times are in Thy hand,
It is so sweet to know
That everything by Thee is planned
For me where’er I go;
The hand that holds the ocean’s depths
Can hold my small affairs;
The hand that guides the universe
Can carry all my cares.

Thou seest all that’s coming, Lord,
The pleasure and the pain;
And Thou art shaping all for me
And my eternal gain.
Thy hand is one of love and power,
So gentle yet so strong,
It surely can control all things
Which unto me belong.

I’m glad I cannot shape my way,
I’d rather have Thy will;
I’m glad the ordering is not mine,
I’d rather have Thy will;
I do not know the future, and
I would not if I might,
For faith to me is better far
Than faulty human sight.

My times are in Thy hand, O Lord!
‘Tis restful it is so;
And as I tread an untried way,
‘Tis quieting to know
That my dear Father up in Heaven
Doth understand my case,
So I can safely trust to Him
all till I see His face.
