Lyrics for Father Stretch by Sunday Service Choir:

Intro
Some call Him Jehovah
Yes, that's right
Some call Him Yahweh
Yes, they do
Some call Him Adonai
Yes, that's right
But we lift our eyes to heaven and call Him

Refrain 1
Father, I stretch my hands to Thee
No other help I know
My Lord, my Lord
My blessings, if I should count them all
As countless as the stars
My Lord, my Lord

Verse
'Cause You're the only power (Power)
That can take this world today (Power)
Jesus, You're the only power (Power)
That can take this world today (Power)
You're the only power (Power)
That can take this world today (Power)
You're the only power (Power)
That can take this world today (Power)
Ohh, (C'mon and lift your voice) ohh (Did anybody come to praise God today?)
Ohh (Put your hands up, let's go), Father

Chorus
Beautiful mornin', you're the sun in my mornin', babe
Nothin' unwanted
Who can I turn to?
Beautiful mornin', you're the sun in my mornin'
You're the help I know
Ah, hey, hey, hey
Who do I turn to?
Ah, You're the help I know
Ah, hey, hey, hey
Who do I turn to?
Ah, You're the help I know

Bridge
I wanna wake up with You in my beautiful morning
Who can I turn to?
Ah, You're the help I know

Break
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Bridge
I wanna wake up with You in my beautiful morning
Who can I turn to?
Ah, You're the help I know

Outro
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Song Facts

“Father Stretch” is a new gospel rendition of the popular Kanye West song, “Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1” featuring artist Kid Cudi, from his album The Life of Pablo. It talks about submitting our will as Christians to the Father (Jesus/God) despite our own pride. It also describes how far-reaching the love of God is. The refrain compares one’s blessings

As countless as the stars

This also alludes to the story in the Bible about God’s covenant (or promise) to Abraham about his future descendants being “as many as the stars.” Genesis 22:17 states this clearly here:

17That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
