these hands

the grand question: how could we think of bringing our sin stained lives, and offering them to God? The answer: Christ.

I bring empty hands,

With nothing in them;

They are bruised with guilt,

And stained by sin.


For only great evil,

And sin can they do,

Yet I take these hands,

And offer them to You.

But the hands of Christ,

Were pierced for me,

Now my sin has gone,

And my hands are clean.

Yes, the blood of His hands,

Has washed me anew,

Now I can take these hands,

And offer them to You.


I bring an empty soul,

But to this it runs:

That my sinful soul,

Has been filled by Your Son!

Lord, without Your grace,

My hands will not move,

Praise God! Grace is free,

And supplied by His love.

Praise God! This Love,

It has set me free

Now Christ has filled me,

And my hands are clean.

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
