  • John V. Pearson, "Behold the Wounds in Jesus' Hands," Ensign, Apr 2009, 61


    1. Behold the wounds in Jesus' Hands,
    The marks upon His side.
    Then ponder whom He meant to save
    When on the cross He died.
    We cannot see the love of God
    Which saves us from the Fall,
    Yet know that Christ from wood and nails
    Built mansions for us all.

    2. Behold the outstreched hands of Christ,
    Our Lord, who came to save,
    Whose love and grace redeem our souls
    And lift us from the grave.
    Though bruised and battered as we stray,
    His guiding hands caress.
    He washes and annoints with oil;
    Then in His arms we rest.

    3. Behold the wounds in Jesus' hands.
    Look to your Lord and live.
    He yearns to bless you with His love
    And all your sins forgive.
    Oh, empty is the heart of man
    When it is filled with sin.
    Come, open wide your broken heart
    And let your Savior in!

    4. Behold His wounded hands and feet!
    Come touch, and see, and feel
    The wounds and marks that you may know
    His love for you is real.
    Then as you fall to worship Him
    And wash His feet in tears,
    Your Savior takes you in his arms
    And quiets all your fears.
