1 Hold out your hand in the darkness of sin,
Help some poor sad heart the haven to win,
Cheer up some soul with a friend’s kindly touch.
And help all you can, be it little or much.

Refrain:
Hold out your hand, hold out your hand,
And bid their hearts be strong;
Hold out your hand, hold out your hand,
And help the world along.

2 Hold out your hand, for the world is a way
Made up of sadness and sorrow each day;
Smiles are a help to the suffering heart,
To laugh at its sadness and make it depart. [Refrain]

3 Hold out your hand, then, wherever you are.
Kind deeds will shine thro’ the darkness afar;
Some sinking soul may its twinkling discern,
Oh, come to the haven and righteousness learn. [Refrain]
