Jesus, Hold My Hand

Misc. Gospel

 As I wander through this pilgrim land
There is a friend who walks with me,
Leads me safely through the sinking sand, it is the Christ of Calvary;
 This would be my prayer, dear Lord, each day,
To help me do the best I can,
For I need thy light to guide me day and night,
Blessed Jesus, hold my hand.  

 Jesus, hold my hand, I need thee every hour
Through this pilgrim land, protect me by thy power;
 Hear my feeble plea, oh Lord, look down on me,
When I kneel in prayer I hope to meet you there,
Blessed Jesus, hold my hand.  

 Let me travel in the light divine that I may see the blessed way,
Keep me that I may be wholly thine and sing redemption's song someday;
 I will be a soldier, brave and true, and ever firmly take a stand,
As I onward go and daily meet the foe, Blessed Jesus, hold my hand.  

 When I wander through the valley dim toward the setting of the sun,
Lead me safely to a  land of rest if I a crown of life have won;
 I have put my faith in thee, dear Lord,     
That I may reach the golden strand,
There's no other friend on whom I can depend,
Blessed Jesus, hold my hand.

The chorus is in two parts, which should be sung by two people together -
lots of fun to do.

This is a hand-clapper. Do it at about 240 beats per minute.

(Verse 1)
As I travel thru this pilgrim land,
There is a friend who walks with me
Leads me safely thru the sinking sand
It is the Christ of Calvary
This would be my prayer, dear lord, each day
To help me do the best I can
For i need thy light to guide me day and night
Blessed Jesus, hold my hand.

(Chorus 1st part)
Jesus, hold my hand
I need thee every hour
Thru this pilgrim land
Protect me by thy power.
Hear my feeble plea
O lord, look down on me,
When I kneel in prayer
I hope to meet you there
Blessed Jesus, hold my hand

(chorus 2nd part)
Blessed Jesus, hold my hand,
Yes, I need thee every hour.
Thru this land, this pilgrim land
By Thy saving power.
Hear my plea, my feeble plea,
Lord, dear lord look down on me
When I kneel prayer,
Blessed Jesus hold my hand.

(verse 2)
Let me travel in the light divine
That I may see the blessed way.
Keep me that I may be wholly thine
And sing redemption's song some day.
I will be a soldier brave and true
And ever firmly take a stand
As i onward go and daily meet the foe
Blessed Jesus, hold my hand.

(verse 3)
When I wander thru the valley dim
Toward the setting of the sun.
Lead me safely to a land of rest
If I a crown of life have won.
I have put my faith in thee, dear lord
That I may reach the golden strand.
There's no other friend on whom I can depend,
Blessed Jesus, hold my hand.
