See the Hands of Jesus

See the hands of Jesus:
The calluses of heavy work,
For He was never idle,
When He was living on this earth.
The hammer, awl, and chisel,
Were frequent tools in Jesus’ hands,
And He was surely sun-burnt,
When He was living as a man.
If He then is your master,
Then follow in His diligence,
For working gives God glory,
Both preaching truth, or mending tents.

See the hands of Jesus:
Disfigured by the bloody nails,
They speak the testimony,
Of grace which never, never fails.
Since by His grace He bought you,
Then clothed in grace you must proceed,
And when He gives you profit,
Use it to give to those in need.
