Hymn day: “Precious Lord, Take My Hand”

HYMN DAY! The story behind “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” is a sad one—Thomas Dorsey wrote it in the 1930’s after his wife died in childbirth, and the baby died only a short time after. The lyrics speak of an aching heart reaching out for comfort. When we reach to Him for comfort, our precious Lord reaches back.

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 to the light:

Refrain

Take my hand, precious Lord,
Lead me home.

When my way grows drear,
Precious Lord, linger near,
When my life is almost gone,
Hear my cry, hear my call,
Hold my hand lest I fall:

Refrain

When the darkness appears
And the night draws near,
And the day is past and gone,
At the river I stand,
Guide my feet, hold my hand:
Refrain
