  1. In His Hand Betsy Carter 3:43

The Bible says Jesus hold us in His hand. We are engraved on His palm. As I pondered this, I thought about how God sees us. He sees us in those hands. He sees Jesus’ righteousness, not our sin. He sees us with His great love and forgiveness. My father-in-law’s hands are gnarled and roughened by being a carpenter all his life. He is a wonderful Christian man and I thought maybe our Lord’s hands would resemble his.
LYRICS:
Imagine the hand of the Lord as a
Strong hand, calloused and worn
By a lifetime of working
And giving and care
Imagine we’re cradled and cared for there
In His hand, engraved in His palm
In His hand, and He sees nothing wrong
When He looks in His hand
Through the hole in the palm
He sees with love
Through a nail-scar in His hand
There’s refuge in the hand of the Lord
Grace and mercy, gentled and calmed
By the touch of compassion
As warm as a glove
We’re safe and secure in His hand of love
In His hand; in His hand
Sheltered protection
In His hand safety’s haven
Nothing can harm us when we’re held
In His hand, engraved in His palm
In His hand, and He sees nothing wrong
When He looks in His hand
Through the hole in the palm
He sees with love, He sees with love
He sees with love through a nail-scar
In His hand
