Beautiful Lyrics: Hope Has Hands

I had some of these lyrics read to me as poetry and discovered a beautiful song about the Lord Jesus:

Hope Has Hands by the Hoppers

In search of a child they travel so far
Led by a star to a place of joy
Now the wise men tell a beautiful story
Describing the glory of a baby boy

Hope has hands
Freedom has feet
Truth will stand
The Word will speak
The holy and lowly will finally embrace
For love has a heartbeat
And grace has a face

Compassion has a tear
Joy has a laughter
And here ever after peace has a smile
Redemption’s blood has veins to flow in
A temple to glow in
Light is a child

Hope has hands
Freedom has feet
Truth will stand
the world will sleep
The holy and lowly will finally embrace
For love has a heartbeat
And grace has a face

The holy and lowly will finally embrace
For love has a heartbeat
Love has a heartbeat
And grace has a face
Amen.  Grace has a face.  And that face belongs to Jesus.

One of the things that often occurs to me is the beauty of Christianity.  Hymns that glorify Christ and “Christ figure” themes that dominate music and literature abound.  Where, in miserable contrast, is the great music celebrating the wondrous joy of atheism?
