  • Story Lyrics In His Hands

    I’ll always remember where I was the moment I found out they were gone,

    The pain, the loss, life would never be the same,

    They chose to leave—how could we go on?

    But the sun came up as always the very next day,

    Because He is the Light of the World.

    There’s lots I don’t see now, but one thing I know,

    Even as my soul aches & yearns.

     

    Someday I’ll understand

    How it all fits in His wondrous plan.

    But, Lord, since someday isn’t here, please, heal my aching soul,

    And till someday, please help me live

    So, till that someday, the Spirit can give

    All the strength to believe

    That for now all I need is to know

    They are in Thy hands.

     

    For so many years I dreaded the last blow, I fought so hard to keep it from our lives,

    But when it finally happened, I let go, Realizing I couldn’t stop the knife.

    But through the years the thought of what once was and is no more,

    The pain of what should last beyond the end

    Makes its way into my heart, until I recall,

    That even broken branches He can mend.

     

    Cause someday, we’ll understand

    How it all fits in His wondrous plan,

    But, Lord, since someday isn’t here,

    Please soothe my wounded soul,

    And, till someday, please help me live,

    So, till that someday, the Spirit can give,

    All the strength to believe that for now, all I need

    Is to know……We are in His hands.

     

    So, Lord, when the bad times take their toll,

    Help me remember that Thou art always in control,

    I will trust in the justice and the mercy of Thy Son,

    Who will work it out, for our best,

    Giving peace and hope to strengthen us,

    Until the victory’s won. 

     

    So much has come, and then has had to go,

    Roles & friendships, trials & seasons of our life,

    I’m so grateful for the constants that surround me each day,

    They bring peace & stability through the strife;

    But still I often wonder why things have to be,

    Do His hands shape the bad and fleeting all the same. 

    Yes they do, so I’ll keep believing in His grand design

    That I’ll see beautifully finished on that day.

     

    Cause someday, we’ll understand

    How it all fits in His wondrous plan,

    But, Lord, since someday isn’t here,

    Please calm my wond’ring soul,

    And, till someday, please help me live,

    So, till that someday, the Spirit can give,

    All the strength to believe that for now, all I need

    Is to know……We are in His hands.

     

    On that someday when we feel His hands again,

    We will know….

    We were always in His hands.  Life is in His hands. 

    I am in His hands.  We are in His hands.

    We are in His hands.

NOTES
This will be a future CD. TO DOWNLOAD ANY INDIVIDUAL SONGS HERE, please click on the ORDER ALBUM button, which will take you to the BANDCAMP WEBSITE. There you can CLICK ON THE INDIVIDUAL SONG and DOWNLOAD for $1 each, payable through Paypal.

These songs are some of my most personal, coming from the trials and afflictions that I have gone through. I have been touched by fear, doubt, suicide, death, divorce, parenting struggles (& stepparenting), and depression, and these songs are my personal reflections and my personal testimony that the Lord takes care of us in our extremities, that He knows how to care for us and to help us grow through them--and that we can know, no matter how hard, lonely, and painful the way, that we are always in His hands--and that through Him, with a broken heart and true faith to do whatever is required, we can be healed of afflictions both physical, emotional, and spiritual. These are preliminary, not final, tracks that I have done on my own (with the exception of those sung by Amy Alvord, which were done with Mark Stevenson and MAS Productions in Clearfield, Utah). Most now are done by me, who doesn't have the most recordable voice in the world (but I do learn more about using the voice I have to its fullest as I go). These songs are the heart of the Gospel, the heart of my testimony, and the heart of what Jesus Christ and His life are.

I hope that spirit and message comes through, even through the stages we have to go through to get this music where it can be truly powerful, as powerful as it can be. We would love to make these songs as powerful as possible someday, in an album fully orchestrated, with singers to match the messages and music. You can help by your donations through our GoFundMe link here on this website, and purchasing copies of our initial CD, "My Savior, My Lord, My King," which include piano solo adaptations of many of these songs.

New: Glenn Rawson Stories & Sheet Music PDFs

Please check out my new sections, Glenn Rawson Stories and Sheet Music PDFs under Sacred Music. 

Sheet music is finally becoming available!

I LOVE sharing this music with you! 

PLEASE READ to see what you can do for me! 

My goal is to give you something that you can use, not something that will clutter up your files because it doesn't suit the abilities or circumstances of your performer(s).  If what you get doesn't work for your circumstances, please contact me and we will work together to modify the key, the difficulty of the piano part, or the treble/bass configuration so it is something you can use.  

Currently I have decided that I will offer my music, both sheet music PDFs and mp3 downloads, for free.  There are many others who do sell their music, but for me, the time, energy, and emotional mindspace involved in selling it does not make it worth what little I might make at that route.  Please use this music to the fullest.  That's the greatest thing I want.  And a few miracles to help my family that come when we put our trust in Him and let go of our agendas. 

I know there are many out there who don't like to take anything for free.  If you'd like, you can donate through the GoFundMe link here gofund.me/cjvzvk or on my homepage. 

I would love a continuing relationship with those use this music, in a way that we can both benefit from. I may update this song as it continues to be performed and used--and as hard as I have tried to edit it, there may be a mistake that slips through--let me know if you find something.  Also, if you have any great suggestions, let me know.  Please give me your email through my website and I will send you updates, as well as new music as it becomes available. ‚Äč

You can also like my pages on Facebook, ChristineMonsonMusic.org and WeSingofChrist.org, or subscribe to the YTouTube Channels with the same names.  Please share links to this music from these two websites, these Facebook pages, and from Youtube on your social media pages so we can share this music, and the spirit and truths in it, with as many as possible.

These downloads give permission to you to make copies for you and any group you are a part of.  However, as a courtesy, and to assist me, if others you know want to perform this at another time and place, with another group, please have them download this themselves.  I also don't own the inspiration you might receive.  You can modify it as you need.  However, I would love to know when and how you use it!  Send those stories to me.  It keeps me going! 

These small things you can do will greatly assist me in this ongoing project of writing and recording this music and making it available for you and everyone else.   

You can listen to and download these songs and sheet music either here at this website, or at freeldssheetmusic.org.  In the future, much of this music will also be streamed and shared on Youtube with video. 

Thank you!  

Christine
