"All in His hands" — what confidence it brings

To tested hearts, to know that all the things

That make up life and circumstance, He holds

In His strong hands, and patiently unfolds

Th' eternal purpose of His sovereign Will —

That all things shall His grace and glory fill.


"All in His hands"? Then life with purpose moves

Within the circle of His will, and proves

It good, acceptable. The hands of man

Or Satan cannot mar or foil the plan

Which God ordained — to manifest His Son

In earthen vessels, to a world undone.
