Behold the hands stretched out for aid
Behold the hands stretched out for aid,
Darkened by sin and sore dismayed;
Oh, will you to their rescue
Lost wand’rers down to endless woe?
We’ll girdle the globe with salvation,
unto the Lord;
And light shall illumine each nation,
The light from the lamp of His Word.
In heathen lands they watch and
And sigh for help which comes so late,
And grope in sin and nature’s night,
Forever vainly seeking light.
Oh, flash the tidings! shout the sound,
In darkest lands the world around,
Till all the earth
from pole to pole,
Shall full salvation echoes roll.
The watch fires kindle far and
In ev’ry land let them appear,
Till burning lines of Gospel fire,
Shall gird the world and mount up higher.
