NO SAFER PLACE

LITTLE CHILDREN IN A HURRY TO GROW UP

DON’T YOU KNOW YOU CRAWL BEFORE YOU RUN

HE’LL BE THERE BESIDE YOU

HE’LL PICK YOU UP WHEN YOU FALL

(HE IS) GOD OF WONDERS, HE IS MAGNIFICENT

HE IS LORD, THE GREAT I AM

GOD OF WONDERS, HE IS MAGNIFICENT

NO SAFER PLACE THAN IN HIS HANDS

LOOK AT YOU SO FULL OF HOPE AND DREAMS

HE MADE THE TRUE AND PERFECT THINGS

OH LORD HELP THEM TO REMEMBER

AND LET THEIR HEARTS ALWAYS SING

CHORUS

THERE’LL BE MANY TRIALS AND TEMPTATIONS

BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO FIGHT ALONE

HE WILL GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE STORMS

AND ALWAYS BRING YOU SAFELY HOME

CHORUS

OH HE IS GOD OF WONDERS, OH HE IS MAGNIFICENT

NO SAFER PLACE THAN IN HIS HANDS

CHORUS 2X

Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” Lk 23:46

What does it mean to be in God’s hands?

 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand I and the Father are one.” Mt 10:28-30

Security. There is no one greater than Jesus and the Father, for they are one.

At death, my body goes into the ground but my spirit goes to God.

And the dust (body) returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. Ecc 12:7

 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord…  We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body (physical death, body in ground) and at home with the Lord (spirit with Lord). 1 Co 5:6,8

 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” Lk 23:43

I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; Php 1:23

As the body without (separated from) the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead. Jas 2:26

(like a glove whose hand has been withdrawn).

“NO SAFER PLACE THAN IN HIS HANDS,”  Julia (Song 81)
