My Name Is Thomas

Let me see the holes in your hands.
Can I see the holes on your feet
and the wound in your side?
Let me see. I need to see
for myself so I will know
and no longer hide.

So you stretched out your hands, then
showed me your feet, and
the gash in your side.
I could not help but weep.
With my own eyes, I did see
and with my own hand, I did feel.
You peered back at me with a look
that pierced my soul and I knew,
without a doubt,
I’d doubt no more.

For it was you!
For it was you!

My eyes began to water.
My heart began to quake.
The tears rolled down my face as
I began to realize.
Then I laughed like a madman and
fell into your arms.

It was just as you said, though
I did not understand.
For they took you, you bled, and died.
Now, you’re here,
standing in front of me.
You are… who you say and
I believe!
Oh, I believe!
Then I turned with a shout for
the whole world to hear.

He has risen! He has risen, indeed!!!
He has risen! He has risen, indeed!!!

The Blood of Jesus Speaks

I see words embedded in every single drop of blood pouring from our Savior as He is savagely whipped 39 times and mocked with great pleasure. His body breaks open with each strike of the whip. I see and hear words crying out from His blood as it gushes from the deep...
