The Father’s Right Hand
A Story-song for Children and their Parents
Walking in the woods with my daddy,
He held me by his right hand
Up slippery hills, wet leaves beneath my feet
Daddy held on so I could stand.
My hand was too tiny and weak to hold on
I leaned on my father’s strength
He never let go
He held me fast
Even when I could not hang on to him.
Walking through trials with my Daddy
Abba holds me by His Right Hand
The same hand that placed the stars in the sky
Holds mine and me when I cry.
Fear not, I will help you
Thus says the Lord of hosts.
Nothing can snatch you
Out of my hand
I will help you stand!
When my hand is tired
Too weak to hold on
I lean on my Father’s strength.
He will never let go
He holds me fast
Even when I cannot hang on to Him.
