• “God is sovereign, that is He is the boss. He is in control. He is the supreme ruler of heaven and earth for all of eternity. He is Lord. We don’t make Him Lord. He is Lord. And joy comes when we acknowledge that He is Lord; we rest in His Lordship. We trust His sovereignty, and we surrender to it. That means that God has the right to give, and God has the right to take away.” – Nancy DeMoss

In His Keeping by Leila Morris

When the early morning breaking,
Slumber from my eyelids shaking,
Comes the blessèd tho’t with waking,
I am in His keeping.
Day advances, labor bringing,
Care, her mantle ’round me flinging,
Yet midst all my soul keeps singing,
I am in His care.

Refrain

I am in my Father’s keeping,
I am in His tender care;
Whether waking, whether sleeping,
I am in His care.

Sometimes dark clouds hang o’er me,
Not one step I see before me,
Still, my Savior, I adore Thee,
I am in His keeping.
I can trust His hand to guide me,
’Neath His wings He’ll safely hide me,
And no harm can e’er betide me,
I am in His care.

Refrain

Gentle eventide is nearing,
Light from heaven disappearing,
Still the blessèd tho’t so cheering,
I am in His keeping.
Now night’s curtains gather ’round me,
Yet its dangers have not found me,
For His angel guards surround me,
I am in His care.

Refrain
