One Hand

One hand carved the mountains and hills,
   Scooped out the vales and caves.
One hand filled the lakes and seas,
   Poured the rivers and streams.
One hand ignited the sun and stars,
   Propelled the moon and planets.
One hand planted the fruit and flowers,
   Pruned the shrubs and trees.
One hand flighted the birds and insects,
   Filled the sea with fish and whales.
One hand birthed the mammals and reptiles,
   Spread throughout the world.
One hand breathed life into man,
   And gave him a will of his own.

Two hands nailed to a tree,
   Bring me to God,
   And God to me.
