Lyrics
The Master's Hands
When I was young, when I was young,
I thought myself a sparrow in a cage,
My soul wrapped up in troubles,
My feathers bound by rage.
Yet, when I grew, I came to think
An eagle fit me better.
Such noble heart! Such valiant soul!
Just floundered in its fetters.
Imagine what the fool I felt
The day I recognized
The iron chains that held me tight
Were anchored deep inside.

The gentle hand, the gentle hand
That came to soothe, how threatening, so it seemed!
It threw the lock, it loosed the chains.
At last, my soul flew free.
Can I forget the love He gave
The day He shed my bands?
It all became so personal,
The fabled Master's hands.
Can I forget the love He gave
The day He shed my bands?
It all became so personal,
The fabled Master's hands.

When I was young, when I was young,
I thought myself a sparrow in a cage.
