Grand Connection

Do you recall the very first hand?
To grasp your own to help you stand
To hold in warm tender affection
Or clasp in farewells fond reflection
Do you remember how secure
You felt within its warmth so sure?
Oh ‘tis a connection grand
Holding to a loved ones hand

Was it perhaps your father or mother?
This tangible moment; a sister or brother
Was it an old chum or a dear school friend?
Who was the first to hold your hand?
Do you recall the sense of belonging
As its tender grasp fulfilled your longing?
Did you feel the connection grand?
Holding to a loved ones hand

Do you recall the moment when
You first reached for another Hand?
Filled with hope and warm compassion
Yielding to His invitation
Invisible yet always there
Is this loving Hand so fair
Oh ‘tis a connection grand
Holding to my Savior’s Hand

Do you recall your gratitude
The moment you humbly subdued
To this Hands almighty power?
Oh do you recall the hour….
You beheld the nail scars there
On this perfect Hand so fair
Oh ‘tis a connection grand
Holding to a nail scarred Hand
