This life in me is not mine;
I have given it away.
This sinful world is not my home;
It’s just where I shortly stay.
Who knows what this life shall bring?
Some trials great and small?
Shall my life be full of peace?
My Maker knows it all.
Shall I have my dreams come true
Or shall I live amidst a war?
I just hope whatever comes
It’s what He created me for.
What if I walk through a furnace of fire?
I may not lose a hair.
My soul, my body, and my spirit
Are in His loving care.
He is the King of my life,
He will guide me wherever I go.
He will strengthen me all of the way,
Until He takes me home.
