Gentle Hands

Gentle hands
Hands that sat children on his knee
Gentle hands
Hands that made eyes once blind to see
Gentle hands
Hands that made dumb lips to talk
Gentle hands
Hands that made lame men to walk
Gentle hands
Hands that surrendered to the cross
Out of love

Blood stained hands
Hands that were nailed to the tree
Scarred hands
Hands that bear scars eternally
Risen hands
Hands that would not stay in the grave
Holy hands
Hands that are reaching out to save
Take these hands
Hands that surrendered to the cross
Out of love
