When He offers His hand, don't you turn Him away
He can lead you to light through the darkest of days
With His love wrapped around you, you can't go astray
When He offers His hand, don't you turn Him away

In a world full of sorrow, a world full of hate
You can't wait for tomorrow 'cause tomorrow's to late
Come and stand 'mongst the pilgrims in their golden array
When He offers His hand, don't you turn Him away

When He offers His hand, don't you turn Him away
He can lead you to light through the darkest of days
With His love wrapped around you, you can't go astray
When He offers His hand, don't you turn Him away

Well I am no Simon, no Matthew, no Paul
It don't take an Apostle to answer His call
And it don't take a Prophet to stand up and say
When He offers His hand, don't you turn Him away

Well I hope as I'm leavin' my message is clear
It's a fool that would turn down a gift that's so dear
Well He offered His blood your debts to repay
Now He offers his hand, don't you turn Him away

When He offers His hand, don't you turn Him away
He can lead you to light through the darkest of days
With His love wrapped around you, you can't go astray
When He offers His hand, don't you turn Him away
