My times are in my heav’nly Father’s hands,
Their changeful scenes I should not fear;
The reason why, He fully understands,
He will not cause a needless tear.

Refrain

My times are in His hands,
What’s best for me He understands.
I’ll ever trust in His unchanging love,
’Twill lead me to my home above.

My times are in my heav’nly Father’s hands,
The joy He sends a blessing brings;
His light will sparkle on life’s golden sands;
I’ll hide beneath His sheltering wings.

Refrain

My times are in my heav’nly Father’s hands,
Used for His glory may they be;
Until, in that most beautiful of lands,
I’ll sing the love that cares for me.

Refrain
