A safe (also called a strongbox or coffer) is a secure lockable box used for securing valuable objects against theft and/or damage from fire. A safe is usually a hollow cuboid or cylinder, with one face being removable or hinged to form a door. The body and door may be cast from metal (such as steel) or formed out of plastic through blow molding. Bank teller safes typically are secured to the counter, have a slit opening for dropping valuables into the safe without opening it, and a time-delay combination lock to foil robbers. One significant distinction between types of safes is whether the safe is secured to a wall or structure or if it can be moved around. A less secure version (only suitable for petty cash) is usually called a cash-box.
In 1835, English inventors Charles Chubb and Jeremiah Chubb in Wolverhampton, England, received a patent for a burglar-resisting safe and began a production of safes. The Chubb brothers had produced locks since 1818. Chubb Locks was an independent company until 2000 when it was sold to Assa Abloy.
"Safe" is the first single by American Christian and gospel singer Phil Wickham from his third studio album Heaven & Earth, which features MercyMe’s frontman Bart Millard. The single has made it into the top 20 on Billboard’s Christian AC and Soft AC/Inspirational charts and reached #4 on the Billboard's Christian songs chart on January 3.
"Safe" has received extremely positive review from most critics.
Kevin Davis from Christian Music Review writes that Safe "serve[s] to encourage, strengthen and remind listeners that they are not alone as [the lyrics] say, 'You will be safe in His arms, You will be safe in His arms, the hands that hold the world are holding Your heart, this is the promise He made He will be with You always, when everything is falling apart you will be safe in His arms.' "
"The first time I listened to Phil’s single Safe, I was amazed over how the message connected and really appreciate its relevance to all that is going on in the world these days," says WAY-FM Network Program Director, Tate Luck. "The sound is fresh and Bart Millard’s participation is a great touch!"
