Here are my Hands

aaron niequist

 

here are my hands

they’re small, they’re small and

here are my hands

they’re small and trembling

 

here are my arms

they’re weak, they’re weak but

here are my arms

they’re weak but willing

 

here are my eyes

they burn with memories

here are my eyes

they’re teared and tired

 

here are my feet

they’re slow, they’re slow but

here are my feet

they’re stumbling to You now

 

and God, i know

there still is so much i just don’t know

and God, i believe

Your Kingdom can still be built in me

 

so here is my heart

here is my soul

take me in part

take me in whole, whole, whole

i want to be whole, whole, whole

 

here are my hands

they’re small, they’re small and

here are my hands

they’re small and trembling

 

here are my dreams

they’re me protected

here are my dreams

so please be gentle now

 

and God, i know

there still is so much i just don’t know

and God, i believe

Your Kingdom can still be built on me

 

so here is my heart

here is my soul

Your kingdom come

my kingdom go, go, go

i’m letting it go, go, go

i’m letting it go, go, go

i’m letting it go, go, go

Here Are My Hands

a couple years ago, finding myself in a deeply tired and un-centered place, I took a little solo retreat with my journal, a few books, and guitar. it was a difficult and healing couple of days, and God opened me up to two profound realities. first, I am weaker and more fragile than I know, and it’s best to just be honest and admit it. second, God is big enough to still use messy people like me in His Revolution. I am quite small and weak, but i’ve been invited to be a part of something huge and beautiful. that's grace.

musically, this song is incredibly simple and straight forward. It’s fundamentally a prayer, with guitar.
