you stretched out your arms of love on the hard wood of the cross,
that all people might come within the reach of your saving embrace.
Clothe us in your Spirit, that we,
stretching out our hands in loving service for others,
may bring those who do not know you to an awareness and love of you;
who with the Father and the Holy Spirit live and reign,
One God forever! Amen!
~ C.H.Brent (1862-1929 AD)
