It's hard to stand on shifting sand
It's hard to shine in the shadows of the night
You can't be free if you don't reach for help
You can't love if you don't love yourself

There is hope when my faith runs out
Cause I'm in better hands now

It's like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
It's like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
So take this heart of mine there's no doubt
I'm in better hands now

I am strong all because of you
I stand in awe of every mountain that you move
Oh I am changed, yesterday is gone
I am safe from this moment on

There's no fear when the night comes 'round
I'm in better hands now

It's like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
It's like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
So take this heart of mine there's no doubt
I'm in better hands now

It's like the sun is shining when the rain is pouring down
It's like my soul is flying though my feet are on the ground
It's like the world is silent though I know it isn't true
It's like the breath of Jesus is right here in this room

So take this heart of mine there's no doubt
I'm in better hands now
I'm in better hands now

    it's very different to be in the hands of god... he's not just a better hand, he's got the bes hand ever

    In my opinion, the song in better hands is about those of us who may not have always experienced the presence of god in our life's of fully understood it's depth of meaning. This is apparent in the lines ;it's hard to stand on shifting sand
    It's hard to shine in the shadows of the night
    You can't be free if you don't reach for help
    And you can't love if you don't love yourself
    Which suggest all of the experiences we go through and how difficult they are without the presence of god in our lives to be there to provide us with support. Once we turn to god as the song mentions, we have a new sense of confidence and hope in the fact that our faith in god has the ability to help us overcome the experiences and obsticles in life no matter how difficult or frightening they seemingly are. Hence the lines;but there is hope when my faith runs out
    'cause i'm in better hands now
    It's like the sun is shining
    When the rain is pouring down
    It's like my soul is flying
    Though my feet are on the ground
    So take this heart of mine, there's no doubt
    I'm in better hands now
    By placing our faith in god and the fact that his presence can positively impact our lives we will be placing our lives in better hands. Hope this helped! (:

    I think that the song means that we are never alone and it is ok to ask for help sometimes and god is always around for help if you need it you can always pray and ask for help
