Hand to Hand

From my hand to yours, Lord,
I give you all my care,
Knowing every burden
You'll always gladly bear.
But if I keep struggling
To independent be,
I shall miss the blessing
You want to give to me.

From my hand to Yours, Lord,
I give You all my sin,
Anger and rebellion
That rages deep within.
For Your Hand will take it all
And cast it far from Thee,
So neither You nor I
It's shadow more will see.

From my heart to Yours, Lord,
Flows gratitude and love.
For the precious blessings
You shower from above.
I gave You all the sins
That plagued me for so long,
Your righteousness now fills me
To replace all the wrong.

From Your Hand to mine, Lord,
Comes all Your mighty Power,
To help me to walk closer
To You each day and hour.
Leading me and guiding
O'er paths both rough and long,
Your strength, Lord, enabling
This child of Yours be strong.

Keep me close beside You,
Till I reach the Better Land.
Trusting You and holding
Ever tighter to Your Hand.
