His Hands

Rising early to seek the Lord, while he may be found
I take a breath to cleanse my heart while the world keeps spinning ‘round
As the sun peaks o’er the edge to wake from thoughtful sleep
I find my own thoughts leaning to, and plunge in waters deep

I think about the hands of God; the scars he bore for me
The weight of that heavy cross he bore to set me free
I think of His strong and sure embrace to comfort when I’m sad
How those hands lift me up and give reason to be glad

When sickness rears its ugly head, His hands are there to heal
I know He’s with me when I pray, hands touch me when I kneel
His hands are there to point the way; they've guided all along
His hands, like a father should, correct me when I’m wrong

When my very world is shaking, I know that Heaven stands
When my anxious heart is breaking, I’ll not let go His hands.

    Wow Chris, This is a spiritual masterpiece. At the end you wrote " I'll not let go his hands ". I know his hands had to be behind your pen when you wrote this wonderful poem. It is one of my favorite poems of yours........Roger
