Dale Rose Lyr Req: Jesus, Hold My Hand (Albert E Brumley) (21) Lyr Add: JESUS, HOLD MY HAND (Albert E Brumley) 25 Oct 00

Albert E Brumley, original copyright in Gems of Gladness, Hartford Music Co. 1933,
also available in Favorite Radio Songs, Stamps Baxter, 1937,
Favorite Songs and Hymns, Stamps Baxter, 1939,
The Best of Albert E. Brumley,(in print) Albert E. Brumley and Sons, 1966,
and likely many more sources as well.

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 pray'r, 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.

Blessed Jesus, hold my hand,
Yes, I need Thee ev'ry hour,
Thru this land, this pilgrim land
(Protect me) by Thy saving pow'r;
Hear my plea, my feeble plea,
Lord, dear Lord, look down on me,
When I kneel in prayer,
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 some day;
I would 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 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.


Note: there is a LOT more going on in the chorus than I have given. I think it is too complicated for me to type and make it look right. I will put up a sound file and the printed music if anyone is interested.
