Heb. 10:25 “... let us encourage one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

These Hands

by Lawrence Peter Medici

These hands that now a Bible hold,
Once held a gun in crimes so bold,
From handcuffs tight, there still are scars,
That can’t be seen from behind bars.

These hands, so often clenched to fight,
Have found in darkness God’s sweet light,
And now in Jesus’ name are raised,
Only He is worthy to be praised.

These hands, that gambled, cheated, and lied,
Now cling to the One who for me died,
His hands were nailed to Calvary’s tree,
For God so loved the world, and me.

These hands, that shot drugs in my veins,
Now worship God, He lives and reigns!
‘Though locked in prison I may be,
God holds these hands for eternity.
