Beautiful Hands and Feet

Beautiful Hands and Feet

Nothing like the start of the school year crazy, but also being able to work on a song!  This is a song I wrote a long time ago, but a few of the lyrics I wanted to make more accessible to myself and potential listeners.  The heart of the song is about being the hands and feet of our Savior in His gospel movement.  Adopting a new way of life that cares for the poor, the underprivileged, and the outcast.  We often brush off the fact that world change begins inside of us, as we become new creations in Christ, and then it extends to the world outside.

In addition, it has one of the well known verses “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” from Romans embedded at its core.  Hope you like it!

Beautiful Hands and Feet
We are waiting for a time
When peace will reign again
In each of our hearts so fear cannot win

We are waiting for a time 
When hope fills every man
Because Arms of love can reach any distance
How beautiful those hands

They have so much need
O God, please use me
This world leaves them wanting
They are the least of these
Send me to bring relief
My deepest longing
Is to be Your hands and feet

We are waiting for a time
When truth and justice meet
No longer are there lives bound in slavery

We are waiting for a time 
When all will know their need
Of the Savior come for the broken to make them complete
How beautiful those feet 

How can they believe
In what they have not seen or heard?
How could they have heard 
Without your people proclaiming?
How could we ever proclaim
Unless we are blessed with your grace and sent? 
To teach and mend
With beautiful feet 
And beautiful hands
