about

I wrote this song after the news of Aly's diagnosis had had a chance to settle in a little more. I'm realizing more than ever that God is the only true source of peace and safety. Regardless of circumstance, or earthly outcomes, our "hope is secured in His safe keeping".

lyrics

I stand because you hold me up
and you won't let me go
I take your hand and follow trusting
though the path's unknown
You work everything for my good
just like a Father should

like a child, I am perfectly safe
in the center of Your love
I can rest in the midst of a storm
and know I'm taken care of
I am sheltered away from harm,
like a child in my daddy's arms

I reach for You to lift me up
and hold me to your heart
my hope secured in Your safekeeping
life is where you are
You work everything for my good
just like a Father should

like a child, I am perfectly safe
in the center of your love
I can rest in the midst of a storm
and know I'm taken care of
I am sheltered away from harm,
like a child in my daddy's arms

I lay my head upon your chest
and listen for your heartbeat
the rhythm of such perfect love
can calm a raging sea
can calm the storm in me

like a child, I am perfectly safe
in the center of your love
I can rest in the midst of a storm
and know I'm taken care of
I am sheltered away from harm,
like a child in my daddy's arms
