Hymns: Father, I Place Into Your Hands

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” – Proverbs 19:21

A simple song. A simple tune. A powerful reminder that God is sovereign.

Father, I place into Your Hands is a song I often turn to when I literally just don’t know what to do. I turned to it on June 24th, when I woke up to the fact that my country had just voted to leave the European Union. And I turned to it again this morning.

The line at the end of each verse, “For I know I always can trust you”, is particularly challenging for me. It sums up God’s goodness, mercy and sovereignty, whilst challenging me to completely trust Him. That’s not that easy!

In general, this song is a reminder that everything we do, we should do through God. We should be placing everything in His hands: our hopes, our fears, our joys, our sorrows, our worries, our relationships. And whilst that may be difficult, it’s really our only option.
