Bible Verses for My Times Are In Thy Hand

My Times are in Thy Hand

My Times Are In Thy Hand by William F. Lloyd |

Everyone has songs that are encouraging to them during tough times.  This hymn encourages us that we can trust God during these difficult times.  He always has a purpose and He cares about us, so much so that Jesus died for our sins.

Here is a beautiful version of this song:

This is the tune that I am most familiar with for this hymn:

My Times Are In Thy Hand

by William F. Lloyd

Verse 1:
My times are in Thy hand;
My God, I wish them there;
Psalm 31:15 My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who persecute me.
My life, my soul, my all I leave
Entirely to Thy care.
1 Peter 5:6-7 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.

Verse 2:
My times are in Thy hand;
Whatever they may be;
Job 12:9-10 “Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, in whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind?"
Pleasing or painful, dark or bright,
As best may seem to Thee.
Psalm 62:8 Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Verse 3:
My times are in Thy hand;
Why should I doubt or fear?
Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life; Whom shall I dread?
Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Psalm 118:6  The Lord is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me?
My Father’s hand will never cause
His child a needless tear.
Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Ephesians 1:11-12 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory. 

Verse 4

My times are in Thy hand,
Jesus, the crucified!
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified.”
Those hands my cruel sins had pierced
Isaiah 53:5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
Are now my guard and guide.
Zacharias said about Jesus in Luke 1:78-79 "Because of the tender mercy of our God, with which the Sunrise from on high will visit us, to shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."

Verse 5

My times are in Thy hand,
I’ll always trust in Thee;
Psalm 31:14-15 But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord, I say, “You are my God.” My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who persecute me.
And, after death, at Thy right hand
I shall forever be.
Philippians 1:21-24 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better; yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake.
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.


  1. Wanted to let you know that the links to the audio versions of the songs did not come through in the email. So I had to come here to listen to them.

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I am checking into it. However, my preliminary check shows that Google doesn't put the videos into the emails and you might have to come to the webpage to see them. I'll let you know if I find out anything further.
