Written On My Palms

Isaiah 49:16

By Rev. Dean Beaty    5/14/08


To show my constant care you must understand,

I have written thy name on the palm of my hand.

Thou art not forgotten nor ever cast aside.

Thou art my beloved, as a groom to his new bride.


The nails that pierced my hands do not blot out thy name.

But tell of my great love and the purpose why I came.

As my palms are always before my constant gaze,

Just so will be my care for thee through endless days.


To me, thy name is precious and thy soul also.

I gave my life and blood for the debt you owe.

To cleanse your soul from sin and to set you free.

That you might enjoy eternal life with me.
