Lyrics:

1. Here is my hand across the border.
Here is my hand reaching out to you.
Here is a bridge we can cross over.
Here is a pathway from me to you.

2. We never thought there’d be another
who’d understood what we knew.
And now I see, you are beside me.
I reach my hand out and pull you through.

3. Take a step into the mystery.
Take a step into surprise.
I place my hand along your cheek now,
and my lips upon your eyes.

4. Here is my hand across the border.
Here is my hand reaching out to you.
Here is a bridge we can cross over.
Here is a path from me to you.

Background of the Song:

The melody and the first two lines arrived fifteen years ago. Since then I’ve tried to complete this song, but had to wait for it to complete itself. It took real life experiences of bridge building for the words to arrive. 

For discussion:

Describe a friend who has reached through walls and boundaries and touched your heart.
