Petra's "Whole World"

The history-making Christian Rock and praise band Petra during their 30+ years as a band produced some of the most biblical lyrics in their songs that I have ever heard in Christian music. I would have to start a whole new website to adequately pay homage to Petra's music, which ultimately would be to give glory to God for being lifted up through their music. And indeed there are entire dedicatory Petra fan sites out there, but I would like to post one video here of a song of theirs called "Whole World," which I have been listening to over and over recently. The lyrics (printed below) ultimately speak for themselves.

This world truly is under sovereignty, and mankind does not get to decide (and certainly neither will violent men nor terrorists, who so often fill our headlines) when the end will come, despite the "doomsday prophets in the news". God alone will decide that, and He will not bring about the end by any natural means which could possibly be interpreted as human doing or a natural processes (the book of Revelation is clear about that). And when God does bring the end, it will be in justice and righteous judgment; and it will be decisive and final. Such is God's soveriegnty over this world. There can be no mistake. God's ways are not mankind's ways.

Hearts are failing left and right
Children fear this planet's plight
Fatalistic fears abound
And take their toll without a sound

But through the vague uncertainty
Comes a bold assurity
This world is under sovereignity
Divinely ordered destiny

He holds this world together
With the word of His power
Safe within His hands
'Til its own appointed hour

He's still got the whole world in His hands tonight
And only He knows where the sparrow lands tonight
And nothing in this world can stop His plans tonight
'Cause He's still got the whole world in His hands In His hands tonight

Humanistic lies lament
The holocaust is imminent
Doomsday prophets in the news
Predicting who will light the fuse

The fate of His creation
Isn't subject to a man
The final consummation
Is according to His plan

He's still got you, He's still got me In His hands tonight
