Hymn/Song Information

Hold Thou my hand so weak I am




Hold Thou my hand!
So weak I am, and helpless,
I dare not take
one step without Thy aid;
Hold Thou my hand!
For then, O loving Saviour,
No dread of ill shall
make my soul afraid.


Hold Thou my hand!
And closer, closer draw me
To Thy dear self—
my hope, my joy, my all;
Hold Thou my hand,
lest haply I should wander;
And, missing Thee,
my trembling feet should fall.


Hold Thou my hand!
The way is dark before me
Without the sunlight
of Thy face Divine;
But when by faith
I catch its radiant glory,
What heights of joy,
what rapturous songs are mine!


Hold Thou my hand!
That when I reach the margin
Of that lone river
Thou didst cross for me,
A heavenly light may flash
along its waters,
And every wave like crystal
bright shall be.
