Lord, I entrust into Thy hands My children’s names.
Engrave them there in script (Is.49:16) That no-one can delete.
That none can ever burn them From Thy palms with flames;
Not even when Satan wants To sift them as the wheat.
Lord, hold them in Thy hands
When I must set them free.
And with Thy strength over
My children’s weakness hover.
Thou knowest the world will
Hate them with intensity
If they reject this world,
And turn to Thee for cover.
I do not ask Thee to keep Them from all sorrow,
But comfort them when Loneliness and fear are strong.
And in Thy Covenant keep Them for the morrow,
And let them never stray From Thee their whole life long.
Lord, I entrust into Thy hands My children’s names forever!
Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.
~ Isaiah 49:16
