Selfish hands and idle hands
are rotten to the core.
Loving hands and humble hands -
are needed even more.
Not famous hands or jealous hands -
but hands that do God's will.
Eager hands and fearless hands -
enduring hands as well.
Patient and obedient,
or busy like a bee -
clammy too or greasy,
or clumsy they may be.
Feeble hands or age old hands,
or hands that hug a lot -
rugged hands or wrinkled hands,
great many hands or not.
All hands on deck must listen,
and every faithful hand -
as we go into this dark world
and visit every land.
Share the never failing hands,
those hands that still prevail.
The hands that carry us some day -
are hands that held the nails.
