Palms

I have engraved you on the palms of my hands
Who said this?  Do you know Him?

Who has gone up to heaven and come down?
Who has cupped the wind in the palms of His hands?
Who has wrapped up all the waters in His cloak?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name, and what is His son’s name?
Surely you know!

Hosanna!  Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!

Palm leaves held high by children of all ages
Jesus sees the needs of every single one.

Who raises palms of hands to the Lord?
Only the vulnerable, the needy, those who seek.

They laid palms on the ground before Him.
He laid His palms on the cross before us.

Hosanna!  Blessed is He who comes!

–Poem by Juli Jarvis, March 2013
–Scriptures taken from Isaiah 49:16, Proverbs 30:4
