Behold the Wounds in Jesus' Hands


Behold the Wounds in Jesus' Hands

Music for Choirs, Music from the Ensign, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

1. Behold the wounds in Jesus’ hands,

The marks upon His side,

Then ponder who 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.

 

2. Behold the outstretched hands of Christ,

Our Lord, who came to save,

Whose love and grace redeem our souls

And lift 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.

 

3. 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!

 

4. Behold His wounded hands and feet!

Come touch, and see, and feel

The wounds and marks that you may 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.
