Engraved

These are lyrics to a song the Lord gave me in 2005. They are based on Isaiah 49:16a which reads, “See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.” (NIV)

My name is engraved
On the palms of Your hands
I don’t know why
You chose to die
And I’m to blame
For Your pain.
You took the nails
Meant for me
And wrote my name.
[music]

Your name is engraved
Upon my heart, upon my heart
I know the reason
I love you
You loved me first
Right from the start.
You took Your love
And wrote Your name
Upon my heart.

Chorus:
You wrote my name
On the palms of Your hands
Such love
I cannot understand
You wrote Your name
Upon my heart
And I will never be the same.

Your name is engraved
Upon my heart, upon my heart
I know the reason
I love you
You loved me first
Right from the start.
You took Your love
And wrote Your name
Upon my heart.
Jesus, You’re engraved upon my heart.
