THE HANDS OF THE CARPENTER - FOR JEFF

THE HANDS OF THE CARPENTER - FOR JEFF

I have a friend who’s a carpenter,
Beautiful gifts from wood, he designs.
He shares God’s message in each one,
And carves with precision hands divine.

His hands are skilled and very calm,
As he works with the wood each day.
And each gift holds a special message,
For the one who receives it far away.

He gets his hands in the sawdust,
And he thinks of His Savior, so dear,
And as his creations become beautiful,
He can’t help feeling Jesus, so near.

As he examines one gift made so special,
It’s another set of hands he has made.
The hands of another Carpenter,
Hands with nail scars for the sacrifice He gave.

My friend can look through the sawdust,
And can see the next project to come.
He is thankful to be a carpenter by trade,
So loving gifts he can share, when they’re done.

The calloused hands of this carpenter,
Who have labored and worked hard every day,
Can be just as gentle as the Savior’s hands,
As his creations he sends on their way.

Two carpenters, each different from the other
But each one has a real job to do.
One will bring us salvation as the true King of kings
While the other points the Way to life anew.

Two carpenters who share the love of a Father,
Who could both look through the sawdust and see,
That One would give His life on Calvary,
While the other’s wooden treasures, Would bring us great pleasures
Sharing the story of how Christ set us free.

To: Jeff, the carpenter, who shares the Carpenter of Galilee with all of us
through his writing and his beautiful gifts of wood.
