HANDS OF THE LORD

Why do men die and why do they cry
All these are in the hands of the Lord
What is our thrill when men they do kill
All these are in the hands of the Lord

Who made the land of rocks and of sand
Only the hands of the Lord
What does He know of each friend and foe
All these are in the hands of the Lord

Hast'ning a long, with our faith as a shield
We can do wrong so to God we must yield

He recognized the world-lust in our eyes
Shackled by the hands of the Lord
What brings tomorrow and what do we know
Of the mighty hands of the Lord

Where do we go? the Bible really shows
As also do the hands of the Lord
What can you do? ask Jesus into you
And be held by the hands of the Lord

Why do we fear does nobody here
Know of the hands of the Lord
Can't someone tell you're headed straight for Hell
Without the shielding hands of the Lord

Hast'ning a long, with our faith as a shield
We can do wrong so to God we must yield

Try not to sin and Let Jesus come within
He'll keep you in the hands of the Lord
He'll make sure you're well, face Heav'n instead of Hell
Within the shielding hands of the Lord

Held in the hands of the Lord
