A Woman's Hands

"A Woman's Hands"
by: Sandra King

Soft to the touch and beautiful to the eye
are a woman's hands
Working diligently from sunrise to sunset
are a woman's hands

Are my 2 hands and 10 fingers enough to take on the battles in life
and eventually win the war?

Soothing the cry of a baby and nursing a sick child
are a woman's hands
Redirecting and correcting in the right directions
are a woman's hands

Yes your hands and fingers are enough. Don't run from the battle
you can win this war.

Underestimated for their strength and longevity
are a woman's hands
They may grow tired, but they never quit
are a woman's hands

Psalm 144:1 - Blessed be the Lord my Rock, Who trains my hands for war,
And my fingers for battle-

Lonely as they walk down the neighborhood streets
are a woman's hands
Looking for a sister or friend to share life with
are a woman's hands

Ready to fight even if I have to go at it alone. To much is at stake
and I can't afford the price if the war is lost

Geared up to defend family, faith and friends
are a woman's hands
Ready, set, go.....as they stretch toward heaven
are a woman's hands

When God saw my palm and finger prints, He knew it was me.
For there is none in heaven or on earth like mine

At last they sway from side to side
are a woman's hands
Proclaiming victory and they worship the Lord God Almighty.
