Bless These Hands

O maker of the garden, hold these hands
Give them the patience that they need
to press the tiny seeds into the dirt
and wait … wait … for new life to show

God, you turn a burial into a seed’s new chance at life
You draw us from the darkness to the light

O life within the garden, help these hands
give them the tenderness they need
to feel the velvet petals of a rose
and love … love … the new life that shows

God, you turn a burial into a seed’s new chance at life
You draw us from the darkness to the light

Hands that pray, hands that love, hands that serve
Hold these hands, help these hands, bless these hands.

I wrote this song for the DASD class of 2004.
More album notes, plus purchasing information.
