209. Our Times Are in Thy Hand

by W.F. Lloyd, 1835
Our times are in Thy hand,
Father, we wish them there;
Our life, our soul, our all, we leave
Entirely to Thy care.
Psalm 31:15; Philippians 4:6; 1 Peter 5:7
Our times are in Thy hand,
Whatever they may be,
Pleasing or painful, dark or bright,
As best may seem to Thee.
2 Corinthians 12:7-10
Our times are in Thy hand,
Why should we doubt or fear?
A Father's hand will never cause
His child a needless tear.
Hebrews 12:11
Our times are in Thy hand,
Jesus the crucified!
The hand our many sins had pierced
Is now our Guard and Guide.
1 Corinthians 1:23; 1 Corinthians 2:2; Psalm 121:3; Psalm 32:8
Our times are in Thy hand,
Jesus the Advocate!
Nor can that hand be stretched in vain,
For us to supplicate.
1 John 5:1
Our times are in Thy hand;
We'd always trust in Thee,
Till we have left this weary land,
And all Thy glory see.

“My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.” (Psalm 31:15)
