Lift your hands up to help me not to cause me pain. Do not slap me, help me. Do not wound my soul. Use your healing hands to soothe my pain. Lay your hands to embrace and pray for me.
Lift your hands up to lift me up not weigh me down. Do not tear me down by your hands. Do not dig a hole to bury me in. Use your hands to lift me higher into the light and out of darkness.
Lift your hands up to give praise not to use them to carry scandalous strife. Do not scorn me by spreading falsehoods. Do not touch the anointed, lend your hand in need.
