Alison Krauss – In The Palm Of Your Hand Lyrics

(Ron Block/Moonlight Canyon Publishing, BMI)

If I could have the world and all it owns

A thousand kingdoms, a thousand thrones

If all the earth were mine to hold

With wealth my only goal

I’d spend my gold on selfish things

Without the love that Your life brings

Just a little bit more is all I’d need

‘Til life was torn from me

I’d rather be in the palm of Your hand

Though rich or poor I may be

Faith can see right through the circumstance

Sees the forest in spite of the trees

Your grace provides for me

If I should walk the streets no place to sleep

No faith in promises You keep

I’d have no way to buy my bread

With a bottle for my bed

But if I trust the One who died for me

Who shed His blood to set me free

If I live my life to trust in You

Your grace will see me through

I’d rather be in the palm of Your hand

Though rich or poor I may be

Faith can see right through the circumstance

Sees the forest in spite of the trees

If I could have the world

If I could have the world and all it owns
