My mom passed away a few years ago.  As I was preparing to 
give the eulogy at the memorial service, my wife shared with me the 
beautiful poem "He Maketh No Mistake".  I found great comfort in the words, 
and hope you will as well...  (Ralph Merrifield, December 2007)

In My Father’s Hands


My Father’s way may twist and turn, my heart may throb and ache.
But in my soul I’m glad I know, He doesn’t make mistakes
My cherished plans may go astray, my hopes may fade away,
But still I’ll trust my Lord to lead, 'tis He Who knows the way  (chorus)

CHORUS:

I will praise Him for the dry times
I will praise Him through the rains
From the darkest night to the brightest morning
Blessed be His name
I will cling to Him in trials
I will hide beneath His wings
For by faith I know He’ll never leave me.
Safely I’ll remain...  in My Father’s hands

Tho’ night be dark and it may seem that day will never break;
I’ll pin my faith, my all in Him. He doesn’t make mistakes
There’s so much now I cannot see, My eyesight’s far too dim;
But come what may, I’ll simply trust and leave it all to Him. (chorus)

My Father’s way may twist and turn, my heart may throb and ache.
But in my soul I’m glad I know, He doesn’t make mistakes
For by and by the mist will lift and plain it all He’ll make,
Through all the way, tho’ dark to me, He made not one mistake. (chorus)

FINAL CHORUS:

I will praise You for the dry times
I will praise You through the rains
From the darkest night to the brightest morning
Blessed be Your name
I will cling to You in trials
I will hide beneath Your wings
For by faith I know You’ll never leave me.
Safely I’ll remain in My Father’s hands

For months now I have played "The Lord's Prayer" and "In My Father's Hands"
with great comfort in both the music and of course the words.
