SAFEST HANDS

by Daniel Ward

YOUR DEPTH OF ANGUISH AND DESPAIR I CANNOT FULLY COMPREHEND,
WHEN ALL HOPE IT SEEMS IS LOST, AND OF THE PAIN, THEIR SEEMS NO END,
WHEN ALL THE WORLD AROUND YOU CRUMBLES, LIKE JUST ON THE SHIFTING SANDS,
IT IS HERE I CAN DIRECT YOU MATE, INTO THE SAFEST HANDS,
THE HANDS OF ONE WHO LOVES YOU, OF ONE WHO’S SEEN IT ALL BEFORE,
SUFFERED ALL THERE IS TO SUFFER, SO SIN COULD REIGN IN YOU NO MORE,
IT’S THE SUM OF ALL HE’S DONE FOR US, THAT I CAN GUIDE YOU TO THIS PLACE,
TO THE FOOT OF JESUS CROSS, MATE, HIS MAJESTY AND GRACE,
ITS AS FAR AS I CAN TAKE YOU, AS ANY GODLY PERSON CAN,
THE MIRACLE OF SALVATION, RESTS ALONE WITH GOD, NOT MAN,
AND ALL THAT PAIN AND BROKENESS OF LIFE, WHICH SIN, SO SAVAGELY AFFORDS,
CAN BE GIVEN OVER, RELINQUISHED TODAY, TO THE KING OF KING, LORD OF LORDS.

welcome to the kingdom. God bless you mate
