Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 "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," 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.

2 "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. [Refrain]

3 "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. [Refrain]

4 "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. [Refrain]
