Hands that soothe a hurt with love,
Are smiled upon by God above.
Helping hands to show they care,
Always do their willing share.
Hands of fine dexterity,
Can tools of lasting beauty be.
Hands that join in fervent prayer,
Have appeal beyond compare.
Reaching hands toward those in need,
Bridge the gap of thought and deed.
Hands that give their all and more,
Lead the way to Heaven's door.
