The Hands of Jesus

holding hands

As infant hands

they clasped around Mary’s finger.

As all infant hands do.

They obediently served,

Both Mother and Father.

As God’s word says

we all should do.

In the ministry,

the blessed hands of Jesus,

touched, and healed,

all who were sick.

With tenderness and love

His hands touched lives.

One day, they were pierced,

nailed to an old rugged cross.

Out of love, they suffered, for you.

Now the loving hands of Jesus

reach out to you, waiting,

for you to place your hands

forever in His.
