I will hold you by MY HAND,
I will lead you and feed you,
Show you all you need to do.
Whenever you are scared
And feel alone
Just remember I hold you in MY HAND.
Oh what do you fear
No evil can near
Safe and secure in MY HAND
When the pressure to succeed,
Falls heavily on you.
Just remember you're inscribed in MY HAND
I will show you what to do,
I will give you the best;
You're forever engraved in MY HAND
When the enemy comes,
To steal away your joy,
I will shelter you from every blow.
None can take what i give
With my strength you will live;
Hidden in the Shadow of MY HAND
When you feel your life is empty,
and purpose is lost;
I will always have something better for you.
When your work is in vain,
And your heart crumbles in pain,
I will touch and heal with MY HAND.
And then in sickness and pain,
I will strengthen and keep you,
Bless you even when you're old.
when one last day
you leave your earthly home
I receive you in MY HAND
Filled with thoughts so wrong,
I wandered along; lonely and lost.
Fears and doubts overwhelmed me;
Till one day I found…
Higher thoughts, better ways;
Words of truth, plans I just don’t understand.
Hope and life, peace and joy: a life I don’t deserve
Yet mine because of HIM
Now I live everyday;
Fear, doubt and sin atoned at the cross.
JESUS t o fill every lonely spot.

Along the wayside, bare:
Finding worth this blessed day,
For the Maker chose to touch
The Maker proceeds with certain aim;
to mould and make good,
This ugly lump of clay, undesired;
A thing of beauty and grace!
But Oh! the unworthy lump of clay,
Forgetting its roots;
Dares ask the Maker,
"What do you make of me?"
Still the lump that yields and surrenders,
Fully knowing the Maker's skill,
Finds itself transformed;
A vessel of honour, a vessel of worth!
-Preena Deepak Samuel
(Based on Is 45:9)
You provide and feed and care;
Like none else could.
You carry in your strong arms,
The little lamb, weak and weary;
Close to your heart to stay.
You understand the ones with young,
And lead them gently on the way.
Oh! such tender care!
You seek and find and never give up,
On the unworthy,runaway lamb.
Finding good even in this stray.
You correct and lead in the right way,
Your eyes always on the flock;
Only good shall unfold
-Preena Deepak Samuel
(Based on Is 40:11 and Ps 23)
