Today I was reminded of an old song that was a part of my childhood. The tune is one borrowed from another song, a simple melody easy to pick up on. But the thing that really knocked me over is the words.

Father, I place into your hands
The things I cannot do,
Father, I place into your hands
The things that I’ve been through.
Father, I place into your hands
The way that I should go,
For I know I always can trust you. 

Father, I place into your hands
My friends and family.
Father, I place into your hands
The things that trouble me.
Father, I place into your hands
The person I would be,
For I know I always can trust you. 

Father, we love to see your face,
We love to hear your voice.
Father, we love to sing your praise
And in your name rejoice.
Father, we love to walk with you
And in your presence rest,
For we know we always can trust you. 

Father, I want to be with you
And do the things you do.
Father, I want to speak the words
That you are speaking too.
Father, I want to love the ones
That you will draw to you,
For I know that I am one with you.

This is a beautiful, powerful and simple, reminder that I don’t have to do anything on my own. There is nothing this song leaves out, nothing for me to do but trust deeply.

1O Lord, I give my life to you. . . . 4Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. 5Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you.

Psalm 25:1, 4-5

If the chains seem to bind you, remember you aren’t doing this life alone. Make this song the cry of your heart!
