Listen to this song using Rhapsody (Free for 14 Days)

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 go,
Lost wandírers down to endless woe?
Refrain

Weíll girdle the globe with salvation,
With holiness unto the Lord;
And light shall illumine each nation,
The light from the lamp of His Word.

In heathen lands they watch and wait,
And sigh for help which comes so late,
And grope in sin and natureís night,
Forever vainly seeking light.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

The watch fires kindle far and near,
In evíry land let them appear,
Till burning lines of Gospel fire,
Shall gird the world and mount up higher.

Refrain
