My Father’s Hands
Music and Lyrics: Chelsea LaFerla

My Father’s hands hold wounds from me;
Each piercing bears my name.
He ‘came a slave to set me free,
Now life is mine to claim.
My Father’s hands, His gentle hands,
Are wrapped around my own.
His steadfast brace is always there
That He may lead me home.
My Shepherds hands hold rod and staff
That daily comfort bring;
He leads me to still waters’ side and makes my heart to sing.
Those strong and weathered captain’s hands
Have borne a lot for me;
Through daily trials helps me stand amidst the stormy seas;
Amidst the stormy seas.
