Gerrit and Ellen Beking-NijenhuisIn God's hand Surrounded by loving cares, secured like a precious building, so my fragile existence is secured deep in the hollow of Your hand. You have sought my early beginnings; Your love created me; every minute, every breath I am favored by You. This happy knowing, this happiness, smashes all doubt in me; oppression, sickness, death or suffering, what can separate me from Your love? Because in the hollow of Your hand, surrounded by loving cares, secured like a precious building, You keep me safe forever! Psalm 139: 13 to 16, Romans 8: 38 and 39, John 10: 27 to 29 In Gods hand Omringd door liefdevolle zorgen, beveiligd als een kostbaar pand, zo ligt mijn broos bestaan geborgen diep in de holte van Uw hand. Mijn pril begin hebt Gij gezocht; Uw liefde riep mij in het leven; elke minuut, elk'' ademtocht wordt mij in gunst door U gegeven. Dit blijde weten, dit geluk, slaat alle twijfel in mij stuk; verdrukking, ziekte, dood of lijden, wat kan mij van Uw liefde scheiden? Want in de holte van Uw hand, omringd door liefdevolle zorgen, beveiligd als een kostbaar pand, houdt Gij, voor eeuwig, mij geborgen! Psalm 139 : 13 t/m 16, Romeinen 8 : 38 en 39 Johannes 10 : 27 t/m 29
