Hands by Jewel: Worry Not, We are Never Broken

Some songs are just plainly inspiring. This one by Jewel needs no introduction. The lyrics say it all.

Do not Worry in Life



Enjoy and be edified:
HANDS

By Jewel

If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won't be made useless
I won't be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear

CHORUS
My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn't steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn't ever after
We'll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing

My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never brokenIn the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken

My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
We are never broken

We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's mind
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's heart
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's eyes
We are God's hands
We are God's hands

This song was part of a free 13-song CD project pioneered by American singer-songwriter Five for Fighting (John Ondrasik) for US military members in November 2007.

In the end, only kindness matters. So worry not, for worry is wasteful and useless at times like this. Stand firm instead, well knowing that you are never broken.
