God Is In Control
























I know in all things that happens, God's in Control
In every part of my body, my mind, spirit, and soul.
I stopped trying to wonder why, or even understand
Instead I just continue, to leave it all in his hands.

I am reminded of his promises , I hold on to so dear
It helps to comfort me, when I begin to worry or fear.
His word is my peace, and strength, through storms
I snuggle in the palm of his hands, so safe and warm.

Lord, keep the Joy within me, no matter what comes
Help me find daily pleasures, and treasure each one.
Let me always see a sunset as a clean slate to show
That when the sunrises, I can begin again and grow.

Yes, I know in all things that happens, God is in control
He will never leave nor forsake me through life's toils.
When I start to feel overwhelmed, in his word I'm told
He will lift my burdens, and help me carry every load.
