My life is in your hands – by Kirk Franklin

Abstract:

Join me this week as I share a song each day that I find Inspirational, uplifting, thought-provoking or simply beautiful.

Day 5:

My life is in your hands – Kirk Franklin

Powerful, powerful song! One of my favourite especially when faced with tough life challenges. This song served as a personal comfort the past few years as close members of my wider family sadly passed away.

When trying to make sense of life, it’s challenges, trials, hurts and pains, the words of this song remind me that no matter what life throws at me, if I’ve put my trust and hope in Jesus, he will help me through. But He is not just the ‘God of the storm’ or a crutch to hold me up in difficult times. He’s always there come rain or sun. Even when my trial seems like an incomprehensible wave about to swallow me in, I know my God is bigger than the storm. I feel that the words of the song speak more eloquently than I ever could, so here they are 🙂

Lyrics:

You don’t have to worry,
And don’t you be afraid,
Joy comes in the morning,
Troubles they don’t last always,
For there’s a friend in Jesus,
Who will wipe your tears away,
And if your heart is broken,
Just lift your hands and say.

Oh
I know that I can make it,
I know that I can stand,
No matter what may come my way,
My life is in your hands.

With Jesus I can take it,
With Him I know I can stand,
No matter what may come my way,
My life is in your hands.

So when your tests and trials,
They seem to get you down,
And all your friends and loved ones,
Are nowhere to be found,
Remember there’s a friend in Jesus,
Who will wipe your tears away,
And if you heart is broken,
Just lift your hands and say.

Oh
I know that I can make it,
I know that I can stand,
No matter what may come my way,
My life is in your hands.

With Jesus I can take it,
With Him I know I can stand,
No matter what may come my way,
My life is in your hands.

Always – by Kirk Franklin

Abstract:

Inspirational, uplifting, thought-provoking and beautiful music. That’s what I’d love to share over the next week or so. Hope you’ll like it 🙂

Day 1;

Always – by Kirk Franklin

Old but gold. This one always conjures up beautiful, nostalgic memories of years gone by. Almost all of Kirk’s music I find to be uplifting, musically outstanding, and lyrically on-point. This one is certainly no different.

Have a listen 🙂

Lyrics:

You know I’ve had some lonely days,
I’ve made mistakes and had to pay,
I’ve had some friends that walked away,
Just like mama told me.

But there’s someone whose love is real,
Who cares about the way I feel
(I know You feel),
Every pain and erase every stain,
There’s peace when I call out Your name.

Chorus:

Jesus, You’re my everything,
The cross, You did that just for me,
So whatever You take me through,
I promise You,
I’ll spend my always with You.

No one can touch my heart like You,
Or make me smile the way You do,
I’ve finally found someone who,
Who really, truly loves me.

And when my strength has come and gone,
Your life in me, it makes me strong,
Your hand is where my heart belongs,
You took all my pain and erased every stain.

Chorus:

Jesus, You’re my everything,
The cross, You did that just for me,
So whatever You take me through,
I promise You,
I’ll spend my always with You.

Jesus, my whole life has changed,
Since that day I cried Your name,
For every time You brought me through,
I promise You,
I’ll spend my always with You.
