Jewel – Hands

This song was stuck in my head this evening.

It has been significant for me since the first time I heard it. It carries deep meaning for me. Perhaps it is a major reason or factor in why I chose to name my blog as I did. All I know is that in watching the video, to make certain I had the right one, I started crying. I hope you understand as I do. Lyrics below.


“Hands”

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we’re all OK
And not to worry ’cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these

I won’t be made useless
Won’t be idle with despair
I’ll gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

My hands are small, I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own
But they’re not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn’t steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn’t ever after

We’ll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what’s right
‘Cause where there’s a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing

My hands are small I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own
But they’re not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

In the end, only kindness matters
In the end, only kindness matters

I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

My hands are small, I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own
But they’re not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

My hands are small, I know
But they’re not yours, they are my own
But they’re not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
We are never broken

We are God’s eyes
God’s hands
God’s mind
We are God’s eyes
God’s hands
God’s heart
We are God’s eyes
We are God’s hands
We are God’s eyes


May you know that you are God’s eyes, hands, mind and heart. May you know exactly why you are here and what your impact on this world is. May you know your life has meaning even when you have difficulty seeing it. May you always understand your messages, even when it is as simple as a song stuck in your head. Above all may you know that the divine loves, guides, and supports you in all that you do.

Om Shanti
