The Four Tops

My husband was playing some music in the background this morning and this song came on from the Four Tops. I stopped and started really listening to the lyrics, and it was like a big, warm hug from Jesus. That’s why my page is named “God Still Speaks Today,” because if you listen for His voice, He will speak to you using whatever may cross your path.

I am including the lyrics in the post so you too can get the big, warm hug from Jesus today. Read through and tell me if that does not sound exactly like God talking to you right where you are.

The Motown songwriting team of Eddie Holland, Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland (Holland-Dozier-Holland) wrote this in 1966 for the group The Four Tops. Dozier explained: “Brian, Eddie and I often had discussions about what women really want most of all from a man, and after talking about some of our experiences with women, we all three agreed that they wanted someone to be there for them, through thick or thin.”

“Reach Out I’ll Be There”

Now if you feel that you can’t go on
Because all of your hope is gone
And your life is filled with much confusion
Until happiness is just an illusion
And your world around is crumbling down, darlin’

(Reach out) Come on girl reach on out for me
(Reach out) Reach out for me
Hah, I’ll be there with a love that will shelter you
I’ll be there with a love that will see you through

When you feel lost and about to give up
‘Cause your best just ain’t good enough
And your feel the world has grown cold
And your drifting out all on your own
And you need a hand to hold, darlin’

(Reach out) Come on girl, reach out for me
(Reach out) Reach out for me
Hah, I’ll be there to love and comfort you
And I’ll be there to cherish and care for you

(I’ll be there to always see you through)
(I’ll be there to love and comfort you)

I can tell the way you hang your head
You’re not in love now, now you’re afraid
And through your tears you look around
But there’s no peace of mind to be found
I know what your thinking
You’re a loner, no love of your own, but darling

(Reach out) Come on girl reach out for me
Reach out, just look over your shoulder
I’ll be there to give you all the love you need
And I’ll be there you can always depend on me
I’ll be there

  1. Apart from being called girl 😯 I can see the spiritual value in such a great song. It reminds me of the Westlife song “You Lift Me Up” which was covered by Russell Watson; I used it during a sermon once years ago…and souls were saved!
