where can we put our security in?
material wealth, some might say
popularity, others might say
power and authority, some might say
good results, others might say
success, some might say
relationships, others might say
our image, some might say
insurance policy, others might say
good deeds, some might say
knowledge, others might say

how much wealth is needed to earn security?
will power and authority make us feel secure?
how bout the best results and the greatest success?
how much security will they bring?
how people look at us, how famous we are,
will it make us feel more significant?
will it take us to be in a relationship, even one which is wrong, to feel belonged?
how much knowledge will we need to be sure of the future?
how bout good deeds?
will they secure a place for us?

security is best placed in Jesus Christ, our Lord
people change, situations change, opportunities might be missed
but our God is the same, yesterday, today and forevermore
i am loved for who i am,
a child in helplessness found her refuge and strength
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
i want to honour you coz in you, i'm secure.
