I wrote this melody and sent it to Elizabeth in Scotland. She wrote the wonderful words. Visit her site for more original praise songs. - Elton, March 19, 1998
Reach out in love to those around us.
Christ died for all and we must show His love.
To rich and poor, to sick and weary
A simple task oft points the way above.
We are His folk, the world is watching
To see us live His life upon this earth.
Seek out in love the lost around us.
The lonely stranger and the sick in heart.
Extend a welcome and a comfort.
In simple tasks the Saviour's love impart.
See with His eyes the world around us.
Touch with His hands the lost upon this earth.
You gave Me food when I was hungry.
Your home was with a lonely Stranger shared.
In prison cells your prayers sustained Me.
When I was sick your cool hand soothed and cared.
Come now and share the Father's blessing.
You were My eyes and hands upon this earth.
