Take My Hand, Precious Lord

Album: Bless This House (1956)
  • Precious Lord, take my hand
    Lead me on, let me stand
    I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
    Through the storm, through the night
    Lead me on through the light
    Take my hand, precious Lord
    And lead me home

    When my way grows dreary
    Precious Lord, lead me near
    When my life is almost gone
    At the river I will stand
    Guide my feet, hold my hand
    Take my hand, precious Lord
    And lead me home Writer/s: Thomas A. Dorsey
