To you I present my hands,
hands to hold you when you tear,
hands to fight for you when their armies come
and hands to carry you when you fall.
To you I extend my hands
hands for comfort
hands for shelter when the storms arrive,
and hands to cover your ears when they talk.
To you I recommend my hands,
hands to applaud your achievements,
hands to show you the way
and hands to pray for your successes.
To you I proffer my hands,
hands to rock you while I sing your lullaby,
to keep you safe while you sleep
and to show you that of all the beautiful angels heaven has made,
you were created to be their example.
