Beautiful hands

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!
