His are the Hands

Sharing is caring!

By Melissa McLaughlin

His are the hands that formed the mountains

His are the hands that flooded the seas

His are the hands the shaped humankind

His are the hands that came

His are the hands that reached for his mother

His are the hands that held hammer and saw

His are the hands that wrote in the sand

His are the hands that came

His are the hands that broke the bread

His are the hands that lifted the child

His are the hands that healed the leper

His are the hands that came

His are the hands that fashioned the tree

His are the hands that carried the cross

His are the hands that hung there then

His are the hands that came

His are the hands that felt the nails

His are the hands that bled

His are the hands that covered my sin

His are the hands that came

His are the hands that hold me now

His are the hands I seek

His are the hands that are coming again

His are the hands that came

John 19:18-19 NLT There they nailed him to the cross. Two others were crucified with him, one on either side, with Jesus between them. And Pilate posted a sign on the cross that read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.”

  2. Beautiful poem! How blessed we are that the hands of Jesus are always there for us to hold onto. And His hands are enough, no matter the storm we face in life. What peace to rest our hands in His each day, knowing that He will never, ever, leave us.
