Recently I was enjoying an evening of listening to some of my LP (vinyl) records. I have a huge collection and am so sad that many of them are not available in CD format. I have a tendency to gravitate towards peaceful, melodic songs whether they be pop music, Christian, show tunes etc. This particular song is in the “oldie but goody” category. Below are the lyrics by Brown, recorded on Word Records by the Imperials.
Reach out and touch a soul that is hungry.
Reach out and touch a spirit in despair.
Reach out and touch a life torn and dirty a man who is lonely,
if you care.
Reach out and touch that neighbor who hates you.
Reach out and touch that stranger who needs you.
Reach out and touch the brother who needs you,
Reach out, and let the smile of God touch through you.
Reach out and touch a friend who is weary.
Reach out and touch a seeker unaware.
Reach out and touch though touching means losing, a part of
yourself, if you dare.
Many know Him well, others just by name.
If you don’t know for what He stands, you’ve really much to gain.
With faith you can move mountains.
These are common words but true.
We are quite a mountain, but He’s moved us here to you.
Accept Him with your whole heart. Then use your own two hands.
With one reach out to Jesus, with the other, bring a friend.
