Jesus’ Hands (Hymn for the Broken)

Here’s the latest song I’ve been working on. It’s one that’s been on my mind to write for quite some time now. It’s a song that deals with a lot of the emotional situations we go through at some point in our life: Doubt, Guilt, Sickness, & death. It’s kind of like a Hymn, not by the technical definition, but kind of.

I started writing the song after my wife had a miscarriage and we were dealing with the grief of losing our baby. It’s a summary of the places I’ve found comfort from Jesus’ Hands.

Jesus’ Hand (Hymn for the Broken) by davidlindner
Here are the lyrics:

Life has left you on your knees
weakened from the weight of doubt
scarred with grace to bring you peace
Jesus’ hand is reaching out

Seeking rescue from the waves
guilt and shame from shore to shore
powerful and strong to save
Jesus’ hand can calm your storm

Mountains fall, the earth gives way, the sun withholds its light
But the hands of Jesus, full of comfort, tightly cling to mine
My Shepherd leads me by still waters, my cup overflows
He walks me down to restoration, trusting Him I go.

Weak, your flesh, it wastes away
trying you with every breath
don’t lose heart, for in His grace
Jesus’ hand will give you rest

Dark and stormy is the day
filled with grief that death unfurled
Man of sorrows, Jesus came
His hands overcame the world

Mountains fall, the earth gives way, the sun withholds its light
But the hands of Jesus, full of comfort, tightly cling to mine
My Shepherd leads me by still waters, my cup overflows
He walks me down to restoration, trusting Him I go.

When you breathe your final breath
Your journey through this life is done
Then the one who conquered death
Jesus’ hand will lead you home

Jesus’ hand will lead y

ou home
