Within your hands

All who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16; NLT).

1. May I live
Within your hands,
Rejoicing, Lord,
In your commands.

2. May I live
Within your mind,
Praising you,
For you are kind.

3. May I live
Within your heart,
Delighting, Lord,
To play my part.

4. May I live
Within your soul,
Trusting you
To make me whole.
