O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Stretch Forth Thy Hand

Lyrics
"Stretch forth thy hand," thy palsied hand,
Fear not, it is thy Lord's command;
Seek not from Him to hid thy sin,
Confess, and ask to be made clean.

"Stretch forth thy hand," thy empty hand,
No gift of thine will God commend;
The empty hand that shows thy need,
Of this alone will He take heed.

"Stretch forth thy hand," thy helpless hand,
Upheld by God, thy soul shall stand;
Fight not in thine own strength the foe,
But trusting Jesus, onward go.

"Stretch forth thy hand," thy dying hand,
When thou shalt come to Jordan's strand;
Thro' all the billows Christ shall guide,
And bring thee safe to Canaan's side.

Chorus:
"Stretch forth thy hand," on Christ believe,
"Stretch forth thy hand," the pow'r receive;
He offers grace so full and free,
"Stretch forth thy hand," He speaks to thee.
