10. Hands Of God (feat. Matt Hammitt)

If We're Honest
by Francesca Battistelli


On my own / I’ve been falling to the pressure / There’s a weight / That’s been heavy on my
shoulders / I need you / To lift me up // I’m so tired / Of trying to make up new excuses / Faking smiles / Trying to hide I’m only human / I need you / To lift me up / ‘Cause on my own / Is not enough // CHORUS: Every time you speak out / And say the words I need to hear / Every time you reach out /I can feel His love so near / I hope you know / To me you are / The hands of God // I don’t doubt / God is with me in the valley /But I believe / He gave me you / To remind me / The face of love / An answered prayer / The hands of God / With me right here // CHORUS // DOUBLE CHORUS: Every time you listen to me / ‘Cause you know I need a friend / Every time you stop what you’re doing / And help me find my way again / I hope you know / To me you are / The hands of God // You are the hand upon my shoulder when I’m hurting / You are the voice of truth and love when I am searching / For every time you reach to help me in my need / One day Jesus will say, you did it for Me // CHORUS // DOUBLE CHORUS

(Francesca Battistelli / Matt Hammitt / Seth Mosley)

Behind the Song:
I wrote “Hands Of God” with Seth Mosley and Matt Hammitt from Sanctus Real. We were talking about our lives and careers, and the turns they’ve taken. In particular, we were thinking about how amazing it is to have those people who are there throughout the ups and downs, and we wanted to write a song to honor them. In particular I think of a group of women in the industry who get together monthly to pray for and encourage each other. They are the hands of God to me in so many ways. -Francesca Battistelli
