SAFE IN THE ARMS OF JESUS



Safe in the Arms of Jesus by Michael Switzer

One day the Lord’s disciples Tried to send the little children away.
“The Master is much too busy To be bothered with these little ones today.”
But Jesus saw their actions, And He was much displeased.
And as He sternly rebuked them, He set a child upon His knee.

And He took them up in His arms and blessed them,
For He loves little children you see.
And to be safe in the arms of Jesus
is the very best place to be.

Today I stood beside a baby’s graveside While tears flowed freely down my cheeks.
I didn’t understand the reason And for answers my soul did seek.
But the Master so tenderly whispered To my heart from His Holy Word.
Then I finally comprehended And this precious message I heard.

And He took them up in His arms and blessed them.
For He loves little children you see.
And to be safe in the arms of Jesus
is the very best place to be.

Dear friend, are you weary and troubled? Does your heart seem to be breaking in two?
Then come to the One who is waiting to comfort and satisfy you.
Then a peace that you can’t imagine Will fill your heart and overflow,
and then you’ll understand the words of Jesus That He had spoken so long ago.

And He’ll take you up in His arms and will bless you.
For He loves you, don’t you see.
And to be safe in the arms of Jesus
is the very best place to be.
