some brief, scattered thoughts ...
Human hands of flesh and blood
God incarnate, as a child
Perfect man, yet wholly God
Holy, harmless, undefiled
Healing hands stretched forth in power
Made the muted lips to talk
Blind to see, the deaf to hear
Palsied limbs to rise and walk
Loving hands with tenderest care
Healed the sick and raised the dead
Bade the little children come
Caused the hungry, to be fed
Outstretched hands, that beckoned one
On a raging, angry, sea
Doubts dispelled and fears were gone
Now reach out in love, to me
Hands that blessed and break the bread
Bound, in dark Gethsemane
Lamb of God, to slaughter led
Saviour we remember Thee
On the cross, we see His hands
Bloodied, torn and riven through
T'was not nails that held him there
But His love, for me and you
Wounded, resurrected hands
Visible, in flesh and bone
Come, behold and understand
See the scars that made Him known
Holy hands, now lifted high
Blessed His friends at Bethany
Clouds concealed Him in the sky
As they parted company
Hands in beauty, glorified
Testament in heaven above
To the Lamb, The Crucified,
Bear the marks of wounded love
What a debt of love we owe!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
