SCARS IN THE HANDS OF JESUS
MY EYES HAVEN'T SEEN,
NOR HAVE MY EARS HEARD,
WHAT MY FATHER HAS IN STORE.
BUT, WHEN I HEAR THE SONG OF THE SWEET SINGING BIRDS,
I'M CLOSER THAN I'VE BEEN BEFORE.

TO THAT HEAVENLY HOME,
BUILT BY GOD ALONE,
ACCORDING TO HIS PERFECT PLAN.
WHERE THE ONLY THING THERE THAT'S BEEN MADE BY MAN,
ARE THE SCARS IN THE HANDS OF JESUS.
YES, I'M HEADED FOR A HOME BUILT BY GOD ALONE,
HALLELUJAH, PRAISE THE LORD, I AM.
WHERE THE ONLY THING THERE THAT'S BEEN MADE BY MAN,
ARE THE SCARS IN THE HANDS OF JESUS.
WHERE THE ONLY THING THERE
THAT'S BEEN MADE BY MAN,
ARE THE SCARS IN MY SAVIOR'S HANDS.
WHEN I SEE A MOUNTAIN, COVERED WITH SNOW,
FALLING FROM HEAVEN ABOVE.
IT MAKES ME FEEL SMALL, HARDLY NOTHING AT ALL,
TO KNOW I'LL BE A PART OF...

THAT MANSION WORLD WHERE THE GATES OF PEARL,
THEY ARE OPENED BY AN ANGEL BAND.
AND THE ONLY THING THERE THAT'S BEEN MADE BY MAN,
ARE  THE SCARS IN THE HANDS OF JESUS.
YES, I'M HEADED FOR A HOME
BUILT BY GOD ALONE,
HALLELUJAH, PRAISE THE LORD, I AM.
WHERE THE ONLY THING THERE
THAT'S BEEN MADE BY MAN,
ARE THE SCARS IN THE HANDS OF JESUS.
