Behind The Song: "Whole World"

Nathan Tasker

“He’s got the whole world in His hands” - Traditional American Spiritual

“There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!” Abraham Kuyper

This started out as a completely different song, with a completely different chorus, and time helped to reshape it into what it needed to be - by borrowing from an oldie but a goodie! I’m sure a lot of us have grown up with the children’s song “He’s got the whole world in His hands”...

It’s funny how as I get older, I need to be reminded frequently of the simple truth contained in that song. Life can move at such a pace, full of the practical everyday duties that need to be fulfilled, that it seems a lot of what is important gets left behind. Even worse, I can start to believe that “getting by” is totally in my hands. A scary prospect. 

The truth is that a sovereign God sees all, and is in control of all. There is a peace and comfort to be found in surrendering today to a God who already knows and guides it perfectly for His glory. And the good news is He owns tomorrow too! 

Onward, Nathan.

This song, much like in the writing of it, continues to surprise me - since the release of "Man On A Wire" and hearing from others about the songs, this has become a {unexpected} popular favorite! You can have a listen here: iTunes preview.
