In The Hands Of God
by Newsboys


Never got the memo
Never got on board
Couldn’t get lost
‘Cause I never explored
Never took a swing
Never held the ring
Never drew a straw
Never knew how to draw
We got the whole world waiting
For anything to wash ashore
Evidence they can’t ignore
Anything to hope for
Faith is the substance
Faith is the glue
Bringing us together
Giving us a clue

(It’ll make ya)

Dance like no one is looking
Sing like no one can hear
Love like you’ve never been hurt
Live like there’s nothing to fear

Never got with it
Never gave blood
Draggin’ my feet
Tracked in more mud
Tried to take control
Dug a deeper hole
Couldn’t get a hand
Then, bless my soul
You hosed off the dirt
Set my feet on a rock
I got a vision from God
I felt the awe and the shock
(I know) faith is the substance
Faith is the key
Faith is gonna take us
Where we’re meant to be... /

(Now we’re gonna)

Get up, get out
Get up, get out
Get up, get out
Get up, get out
Come on

written by Peter Furler, Steve Taylor and Jeff Frankenstein

Behind the Song:
'It's singing in the shower, dancing like no one is looking… it's about reckless abandonment. There's a purity to that. Like the gospel says, unless we are like little children, we will not see the Kingdom. The song is about giving yourself up, stirring yourself up and stepping out. It's about being led by faith, believing the best and making the most of every situation.' - Peter Furler (Newsboys)
