In God’s Embrace

In God’s Embrace
© 2017 Bret Hesla

In God’s embrace we’ve come thus far
In God’s embrace we travel forth
Through perils unknown, on paths untrod.
In God’s embrace we shall remain.
In God’s embrace we shall remain.

O God, you have called your servants to ventures
of which we cannot see the ending,
by paths yet untrodden,
through perils unknown.
Give us faith to go out with good courage,
not knowing where we go,
but only that your hand is leading us
and your love supporting us
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
