South, Towards Carcassonne (Its In His Hands)
By Jeff Johnson

Rain is falling down tonight,
As I walk below street light,
I am all alone in Beaune, France,
Heading south, towards Carcassonne.

Earlier I made the big mistake of pulling out your photograph,
Is there nothing I can do to keep my heart from ... ?

Long ago I wrote this song,
And it keeps coming back to me,
Funny how the things you write for someone else come back to you.

Its in his hands,
Yes I know its in his hands,
And I know that it can be no other way.*

Don't you be sad tonight,
For the Lord's in control.
And don't be afraid,
For the Lord's in control.
And don't be ashamed,
For the Lord's in control ...*

All alone tonight,
Oh Lord I am so grateful you are here with me tonight.

All alone tonight in France,
Wishing that my heart could dance,
Out across the clouds above,
Where I'd meet the ones I love.
