* “FINGERPRINTS’
By Hazel M. Rulison
I see the fingerprints of god
when I look up at the scroll
which is the sky.
I see His fingerprints on earth
in the rivers, trees, mountains, 
and the smallest butterfly.
I see the fingerprints of Jesus
as He touched the blind man’s
eyes and made him see.
I see His fingerprints as He 
calmed the storm on the Sea 
of Galilee.
I see the fingerprints of Jesus
as He touched the lame and
made them walk; when He 
raised Lazarus from the dead
and caused the dumb to talk.
In all the world’s people I 
see the fingerprints of Jesus
always telling us of love….and 
that He still touches us.
The fingerprints of Jesus, no
power on Earth can sever;
One day He touched my sinful
heart and left His fingerprints
forever.Attachments area
