Holds Out His Hands

The story behind the song

When Jesus came, He claimed to be the One who revealed God - who was God - among us. His hands brought transformation, liberation, satisfaction… life! And yet those same hands were nailed to a cross as our ancestors sought to still those hands by putting Him to death.

The claim at the heart of the message of Jesus is that His death and resurrection destroyed a dividing wall between humanity and Himself: that His death was not a tragic interruption of a good man’s life but actually a deliberate God-given sacrifice to make a way open into the ‘held out hands’ of the God who loves…

I hope that you find this song draws you towards that divine embrace.
