My Life Is in Your Hands

A prayer to the sovereign God of the Universe

My life is in your hands,
Like all the starry bands,
From distant past,
To the very last,
At sea, or on farthest lands.

In you I trust to care,
In joy or deep despair.
Inhabit my soul,
Make heaven my goal,
Your Word my daily fare.

Each day your will be done,
Temptation help me shun;
See me and save!
For you may love
Outlive the dying sun.
