I lift my hands in confidence that you will hear my prayer,
I wonder what you think of them as I cast all my care,
Up to the heavens where you dwell, where only you can see,
The darkness of this hopeless world, which first you made sin free.
My hands reach out and they must seem so empty in your sight,
I have no gift to offer you, for bringing me your light,
As you look down and I look up, I feel so very small,
You’ve given everything for me, you’ve given me your all.
I thank you for the love you’ve shown, through your own treasured Son,
Through His great sacrifice I live, and with you I am one,
And now I pray with faith and trust that you will hear my prayer,
The doors to heaven open wide for all the world to share.
