I opened and closed them ecstatically
Then started rejoicing – there’s movement in the hands!
Without pain I could move them about freely
My strength had returned suddenly
All I can say is Jesus has healed me
For days there was the pain and stiffness
Routine, simple things became difficult tasks
Fingers are such a small body part
Can easily take for granted how important they are
They make possible to do independently so many essential things
Like eating, dressing and keeping up hygiene
So, let me lift these hands in rejoicing (Nehemiah 8:6)
Let me clap them in thanksgiving (Psalm 47:1)
Let me show appreciation with praise
That Jesus has healed me of the stiffness and pain.
