Here's the story behind the song, from Matt Papa himself:


Open Hands Verse:

To give unselfishly

to serve the least of these

Jesus I'm learning how to live with open hands

All these treasures that I own

will never satisfy my soul

Jesus I lay them at your throne with open hands


I lift my hands open wide

let the whole world see

how you love, how you died, how you set me free

free at last, I surrender all I am with open hands, with open hands

To finally let go of my plans

these earthly kingdoms built of sand

Jesus at your cross I stand with open hands


You took the nails, You bore the crown

You hung your head, Your love poured out

You took my place, You paid the price

so Jesus now I will give my life
