Hands Giving Receiving

Hands of giving
Hands receiving
Prayer of sharing
Soul believing

Fist of clenching
Will of mine
Releasing now
To the divine

Need extending
Open now
To grace and peace
Gifts You endow

Sins of shame
Of offer here
Forgiven now
Free and clear

Repeating now
Through open hands
The letting go
The pride of man

Taking and Giving

On taking and giving
We hear the world say
Take what you can get
Before it slips away

We buy and get and store
All we can today
But the soul is empty
We need Another way

In the scriptures treasure
We hear our Jesus say
If you want love and joy
Give it all away

Truth within the finding
When we’ve lived our last day
The only thing you take
Is what you gave away
