Representative Text

1 What are those wounds in Thine hands I see?
Scars, cruel scars opened there for me!
Marks of a day when the sun did hide
A thorn-wounded brow and a pierced side.

Refrain:
What are those wounds in Thine hands I see?
Jesus, my Savior, I pledge to Thee
All that I am or ever can be,
Because of those wounds in Thy hands I see!

2 What are those wounds in Thine hands I see?
Marks that may set all the sin-bound free!
Tokens that tell of a night of gloom—
A pledge to the world of an empty tomb. [Refrain]

3 What are those wounds in Thine hands I see?
Wounds that were made upon Calvary;
Wounds that can heal ev’ry bitter smart,
Relieve and bind up ev’ry broken heart. [Refrain]
