We Are In Our Father's Hand

Full Text

1 We are in our Father's hand,
Wisely led at His command,
By His grace and to His pleasure,

In the name of Christ, our Lord.

2 Heirs with Jesus Christ above
Are we through our Father's love
By His grad and to His pleasure,
We His keeping gladly treasure,
In the name of Christ, our Lord.

3 Sharing in His life and light,
Peace and glory, truth and might,
By His grace and to His pleasure,
We His keeping gladly treasure,
In the name of Christ, our Lord.
