We sang this song at our Easter program at Church a few weeks ago. I wrote down the lyrics before the program so I could have them to write this post, then the paper was upstairs, the computer downstairs, and I never thought about them while upstairs and couldn't be bothered to go up and get them when I was downstairs. So when my sister-in-law posted this, I saw them upstairs and carried the paper with me to not forget to bring them downstairs. They then got lost on the kitchen counter for a few days, but they've finally made it to the computer. We sang this song last year, and I wanted to copy down the lyrics then, but as I've already illustrated, the road from point A to point B is long and has many side trips, lol. I always tear up at the end, it's a miracle I can finish it at all.

Behold the Wounds in Jesus' Hands
Lyrics- John V. Pearson
Music- David R. Naylor

Behold the wounds in Jesus' hands,
The marks upon His side,
Then ponder whom He meant to save
When on the cross He died.
We cannot see the love of God
Which saves us from the fall,
Yet know that Christ from wood and nails
Built mansions for us all.

Behold the outstretched hands of Christ,
Our God, who came to save,
Whose love and grace redeems our souls
And lifts us from the grave.
Though bruised and battered as we stray
His guiding hands caress,
He washes and anoints with oil
Then in His arms we rest.

Behold the wounds in Jesus' hands,
Look to your Lord and live.
He yearns to bless you with His love
And all your sins forgive.
Oh empty is the heart of man
When it is filled with sin.
Come, open wide your broken heart
And let your Savior in!

Behold His wounded hands and feet!
Come touch and see and feel
The wounds and marks that you many know
His love for you is real.
Then as you fall to worship Him
And wash His feet in tears,
Your Savior takes you in His arms and quiets all your fears.

Your Savior takes you in His arms and quiets all your fears.
