In whose hands?

I spent some time today looking for sites online that offer good songs as teaching tools for children. There are lots and lots of links to choose from, but I was specifically looking for young children and for free resources.

How surprised was I to find this song…adapted (?) from He’s got the whole world in His hands? How comforting would THIS be to consider?

We’ve got the whole world in our hands.
We’ve got the whole world in our hands
We’ve got the whole world in our hands
We’ve got the whole world in our hands
We’ve got the whole world in our hands

(Huh??)

We should recycle now – all that we can
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – all that we can

Be kind to the plants and animals – of our land
Be kind to the plants and animals – of our land

Additional verses as well. Not a bad sentiment to teach children to take care of GOD’s creation. But it really bothered me that a song originally written to express God’s sovereignty has been changed to once again make US, the created as opposed to the Creator, as the center of it all. We control it all. We’ve got the whole world in our hands.

(Think I’ll listen to “This is my Father’s World” and enjoy a cup of tea.)

  1. Not sure about this particular text where you found this, but this is one of the pillars of communism / facism. Taking GOD out !! Very important to recognize and notice. It’s a sinister step that’s used by regimes all over the world to implement dictatorships and total control.

  2. And we do it so willingly in the U.S. In the name of tolerance. Yikes!

    Amen!
