Song Description

In the 20th chapter of the Gospel of John starting with the 23rd verse Thomas does not believe the other disciples that Christ has risen. Thomas wants to see the scars in Christ's hands and feel the wound in His side, then he will believe. That's the basis of the song.

Story Behind the Song

The passage in the Gospel according to John is the author's (Gary Ireland) favorite bible verse. Thomas was very doubtful about Christ's existence until he could see first hand. Christ's statement after Thomas was convinced is very reassuring. Christ said blessed are you Thomas because you have seen, but blessed are those who have never seen yet still believe.

Show Me His Hands
Verse 1
Show me his hands judge not what I say
Because the scars only heal they never go away
Make me believe help me understand
Remove all my doubts just show me his hands

Then Christ did appear he said I am the way
Be faithless no more peace be with you he prayed
He said blessed are those because they have seen
But blessed are those who still believe without seeing me

Verse 2
Show me the wound I just want to feel
Put my hand in his side then I'll know that it's real
I want to believe he walked from the tomb
Erase all my fears just show me the wound


The Lord smiled and said give me your hand
Then Thomas exclaimed my God I now understand

Because Christ did appear he showed Thomas the way
He'll be faithless no more he's at peace with what Christ paid
Thomas blessed are you because you've seen the light
But blessed are all who still believe without seeing the Christ
