Jesus Hold My Hand


The music above and the transcription below are from The Best of Albert E. Brumley,(in print) Albert E. Brumley and Sons, 1966, but it can be found in many places, some of which are noted below.

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: You can see that my transcription of the Chorus is not EXACTLY as printed!

Here is a recording of Jesus, Hold My Hand by Cynthia Clawson from her CD, River of Memories, Chapel 3306, 1994.
Normally I would encourage you to buy the album if you like the song, but so far, I have been unable to find it for sale
anywhere ~~ maybe it would be available from a Christian Bookstore.
