(Stephen A. Potter, 1977)


The Lord put forth His hand to me,

I grabbed it for eternity.

The days of sorrow, days of sadness

are now replaced with hope and gladness.

His many deeds are a blessing

since that day I began confessing.

The future becomes bright and clear

since I started to believe in the One so dear!

Even though I did not deserve,

the Lord put forth His hand to preserve.

Many times He has knocked at my door;

this time I opened it forever more.

There is still much work to be done;

but I have no fear for He has won.
