The Hand That Dismantles The Dark

 Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here; see my hands. 
Reach out your hand and put it into my side. 
Stop doubting and believe."
John 20:27

The Hand that dismantles the dark
Then dims the light at death of day
Cups in His keep each mortal bark
Like sheep that once had gone astray

The Shepherd of undying love
Seeks man’s undying soul to save
He fits them for a place above
Through His own life He freely gave

Upon a cross He suffered loss
The Shepherd bore guilt’s albatross
And saved mankind from death’s dark dread

The Hand that dismantles the dark
Is scarred where nails pierced Heaven’s best
For earth’s worst; mercy met the mark
That grants the Way to Heaven’s rest
