These Hands

By Daniel Troutman

I began writing "These Hands" about 10 years ago but every time I went to finish it or have it produced I felt that it may be too simple. About 6 months ago during the pandemic, I felt the Lord nudge me and lead me to not only finish the song but also to use it in tandem with a music video that would be a raw and powerful portrayal of the Gospel. After all, the Gospel in and of itself is the best news and needs to be shared. It can be very difficult to understand through the many man-made lenses we put over it but at the heart of it, based on the Word of God, it is not overly complex. These are some of the facts as I see them.
