Jewel - Hands Lyrics




If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that we're all OK
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I won't be made useless
I won't be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear
My hands are small, I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
Poverty stole your golden shoes
It didn't steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasn't ever after
We'll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for what's right
'Cause where there's a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
I am never broken
In the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
My hands are small I know
But they're not yours, they are my own
But they're not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
We are never broken
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's mind
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's heart
We are God's eyes
God's hands
God's eyes
We are God's hands
We are God's hands

  3. Susan Moran

    Buddha said the most important thing you can do is be kind. Saint Terese said god's hands are yours to spread kindness to the world. I will get down on my knees and I will pray.

  4. shane rieger

    Almost 2020 still listening to 90s music and its great

  5. Thomas S. Furlan

    This sing singularly helped get me through a very, very hard divorce, plus Don't Give Up, by Peter Gabriel.

  6. Truth in Exile

    Last Christmas wrote pix a song about holding his hands... This Christmas he is moving...😭

  7. Nick Traynor

    Smokin'

  8. Playboy Casanova

    The lyrics to this song is pure poetry. Jewel's music just take your mind on a journey that'll having you feeling free.

  9. MELLO JELLO

    Where did she go?

  10. MMO ONLINE TV

    still here 2019 , from viet nam

  11. Ann

    Her biography - Jewel - Never Broken....will leave you speechless and humble. She's a good writer, and what she learned to do, grandchild of Swiss artists, growing up in Alaska, all that she has done, and made to happen....totally, totally humbling.

  12. honey bear

    Man I think this is one of jewels masterpieces maybe it's just because I always had a crush on her she's so hot

  35. gdh1984

    If I could tell the world just one thing it would be anne Wilson, stevie nicks, reba, pink, jewel, reba to all sing together

  36. veggiesaremurder

    I've always loved this song since I was a teenager. I'm moved to tears by the lyrics today because of what our country is going through. It feels as though a family is being torn apart and all we can do is fight and scream at each other. This is a good reminder that we can only do the best we can at any given time, and the rest is up to God (the Universe, fate, whatever you believe in) to take care of.

    Les Mains)



    Si je pouvais dire au monde une seule chose


    Ce serait que tout le monde va bien

    Et de ne pas s'inquiéter parce que les soucis ne servent à rien


    Et ne font pas avancer dans des moments comme ceux-ci


    Je ne serai pas inutile


    Je ne resterai pas enfermée dans le désespoir


    Je vais rassembler mon courage et ma foi


    Parce que la lumière éloigne la plupart des peurs


    Mes mains sont petites, je le sais


    Mais elles ne sont pas tiennes, se sont les miennes


    Mais elles ne sont pas tiennes, se sont les miennes


    Et je ne me brise jamais


    La pauvreté t'a enlevé tes souliers dorés


    Mais elle ne t'a pas volé ton sourire


    Un mal, au coeur, est venu me visiter


    Mais je savais qu'il repartirait



    Nous allons nous battre, non sans âme


    Car quelqu'un doit se tenir debout pour ce qui est juste


    Là où un homme n'a plus de voix


    La nôtre devrait s'élever



    Mes mains sont petites, je le sais


    Mais elles ne sont pas tiennes, se sont les miennes

    Mais elles ne sont pas tiennes, se sont les miennes


    Et je ne me brise jamais


    En fin de compte, seule la tendresse perdure


    En fin de compte, seule la tendresse perdure



    Je vais m'agenouiller, puis je vais prier

    Je vais m'agenouiller, puis je vais prier


    Je vais m'agenouiller, puis je vais prier



    Mes mains sont petites, je le sais


    Mais elles ne sont pas tiennes, se sont les miennes


    Mais elles ne sont pas tiennes, se sont les miennes


    Et je ne me brise jamais



    Mes mains sont petites, je le sais


    Mais elles ne sont pas tiennes, se sont les miennes


    Mais elles ne sont pas tiennes, se sont les miennes


    Et je ne me brise jamais


    Nous ne sommes jamais brisés



    Nous sommes les yeux de Dieu


    Les mains de Dieu


    L'esprit de Dieu


    Nous sommes les yeux de Dieu


    Les mains de Dieu


    Le coeur de Dieu

    Nous sommes les yeux de Dieu


    Les mains de Dieu


    Les yeux de Dieu


    Nous sommes les mains de Dieu


    Nous sommes les mains de Dieu

    I love this woman! I was just entering my 20s when her first album hit and for the first time I felt I wasn't alone! She sang the words of my soul. "We are everyday Angels. Be careful with me because I would like to stay that way." ❤

    This song (Hands) is everything!

    Still jerks my heart strings with that voice

  54. Hedgehog's Right of Passage

    She is as fake as a $4 bill. She was on stage since childhood and she herself said that she "learned all about showmanship". Well, I like spontaneous from the heart music.

    Jewel was poor. Her and her mother lived in a car for awhile.
    She had faith and God answered her prayers.

  85. Zen JDM

    This song is more than any song needed right now not just in our country but all over the world. Now again in Norway 😢✌. I don't care what one believes in or not.. I refuse to take part in this hate killing innocent people children women and children. I can't believe this is happening in Norway now. All of our hands heart's are needed regardless of what anyone might feel. This is a song from the second it come out it was my song I'm that person who would run into a building on fire, push even a stranger out of the way of being hit by a car. But this hate has really gone to far. It's time to put all our views aside and start throwing out our hands. Sadly it could be anyone of us innocently killed next and a stranger who saves or try's to save our lives.

  86. Yasir Chughtai

    In the end , only kindness matters !!!

  87. Jennifer Delay

    Joz the got him ok

  88. skinsfan 22554

    Im surprised at how many subscribers there are to the channel. Im even more surprised at the amount of views. I would have thought there would have been closer to a million subscribers instead of 32k and only 7.6 million views. I wouldchave thought at least 10 times that. Jewel was huge in the 90s. Her songs were all over the radio constantly. She is a great artist
