Upon His hands

"Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands" - Isaiah 49:16

"Heaven and earth may well be astonished that rebels should obtain so great a nearness to the heart of infinite love as to be written upon the palms of His hands. 'I have graven thee.' It does not say, 'Thy name'. The name is there, but that is not all: 'I have graven thee'. See the fulness of this! I have graven thy person, thine image, thy case, thy weakness, thy wants, thy works; I have graven thee, everything about thee, all that concerns thee; I have put thee altogether there. Wilt thou ever say again that thy God hath forsaken thee when He has graven thee upon His own palms?" - Spurgeon
