Written On My Palms
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.
