When Healing Hands Were Wounded

Ben Trigg
Verse 1
When healing hands were wounded
A faithful man betrayed
When arms of love stretched wide we turned away
A carpenter was nailed
Upon a wooden cross
And on a hill was high and lifted up
High and lifted up
Verse 2
A window on the bloodshed
That soaks our history
Our hatred vented on humanity
Our sin against the holy
Displayed for all to see
We left him cursed and hanging on a tree
Chorus 1
High and lifted up
High and lifted up
See our God
High and lifted up
Verse 3
When healing hands were wounded
All our wounds were healed
For he himself has carried every ill
Has entered all our suffering
And borne away the pain
His life laid down that we may live again
Verse 4
Forgiven for our bloodshed
Delivered from the curse
Behold what grace so free so undeserved
A window on a new world
Where love and mercy reign
And all our grief and sin is washed away
Chorus 2
High and lifted up
High and lifted up
See our God
High and lifted up
Enthroned upon a cross
Mercy there for us
See our God
High and lifted up
High and lifted up
High and lifted up
Chorus 3
Enthroned upon a cross
Mercy there for us
See our God
High and lifted up
High and lifted up
High and lifted up
