Fruitful Hands

With fruitful hands she tends her field;

feeding, cleansing, mending.

 

Never could an onlooker have told

the changes she is making.

They seem so small, “you’re wasting time!” The world did dare to say.

But by her efforts done for the Lord

The ground began to change.

 

Not without an adversary, he prowled about threatening her fruit devoured.

But every act of faithfulness

uprooted more of his hidden threats

and by the power of the Son they scorched his plans to death.

 

Praise the One and only Son

who has given her light and life!

Now shining bright and clear her path

of truth and love and courage.

He’s bound his work upon her heart

and her hands have changed the world.
