The Hand of God

Out of the shadows
Appears a Hand
Growing larger
As it draws nearer.

It is a Big Hand;
A powerful Hand;
It is not a clenched hand,
Threatening;
Nor a grasping hand
To take all that is precious.

It is a strong Hand,
Outstretched to lift.
It is an Open Hand,
Ready to give.
It is a patient Hand
Waiting for another hand
To reach out and clasp it

Take my hand, Lord!
