Safe in the hands of God who made me,
what can there be that I should fear?
God is my light and my salvation,
strong is his help when foes are near.
This have I prayed and will seek after,
That I may walk with God each day;
then will he give me his protection,
no troubles shall my heart dismay.
God of my life, my Lord, my master,
father and mother now to me:
come, shield me from the threat of evil,
open your hand and set me free!
Teach me your way and lead my onwards,
save me form those who do me wrong;
give me the grace to wait with patience,
help me to trust, hold firm, be strong.
