Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto Me.@Matthew 25:40

Julia A. Wolcott, in Triumphant Songs No.2, by Edwin O. Excell (Chicago, Illinois: E. O. Excell Company, 1889).

Carey Boggess (🔊 pdf nwc).

Lend a hand! lend a hand! in the work for the world!
Place these words in your banner, ne’er let it be furled
While sin, pain and sadness hold sway in the world,
Lend a hand! lend a hand! in the work for the world!

Refrain

Lend a hand! Lend a hand!
Lend a hand in the work for the world!
Lend a hand! Lend a hand!
Lend a hand in the work for the world!

There are eyes that are weeping where none wipe the tear;
There are hearts that are breaking for tidings of cheer;
There are sinners would turn from their sins were you near,
Lend a hand! lend a hand! in the work for the world!

Refrain

There are lips that are burning where none hold the cup;
There are children who starve for a bit and a sup;
There are forms that are sinking, your hand might hold up,
Lend a hand! lend a hand! in the work for the world!

Refrain

Lend a hand! lend a hand! there is coming a day
When He who shall weigh us, to each one will say,
Didst thou help every brother thou couldst in the way?
Lend a hand! lend a hand! in the work for the world!

Refrain
