Jesus is the Handle
It's hard to see
     someone suffering
And be unable to
     ease their pain. 

It's a two-pointed sword
     that hurts most
When the wound is
     made by you. 

It's a deep stab too
     in your own heart,
Leaving no handle
     to pull it out. 

It's good to know though
     Jesus was already there,
Having grabbed that bloody blade
     and took it out for us. 

It's a Godsend
     for all our wounding;
Jesus is the handle,
     forgiveness reigns.
