When life gets out of place
And my world's turned upside down
I find I'm face to face
With all this pain and doubt
This was not my plan
How I dreamed things would be
But You hold me in Your hand
And You remind me
You are in control
You have planned my way
You know all the answers
And You'll never change
You know what is best
You know the why and how
And I know that You love me
So I can trust You now
When questions fill my mind
About what lies ahead
I wait for Your reply
With patience wearing thin
But I know You have a plan
To work things for the good
You hold me in Your hand
And I'm reminded
Please take my hand and guide me
When things just don't seem clear
'Cause the place where You are standing
Has a better view than here
Truly in the end, I only want Your will not mine
Your ways are higher, You work all things in Your time
