1 Hold Thou my hand, O Lord, when pleasures vain allure me,
When from Thy side my feet would turn away;
Then let Thy love, O Lord, with gentle bands secure me,
To hold me safe thro’ ev’ry trying day.
Hold Thou my hand, hold Thou my hand,
Else when temptations come, how shall I stand,
Or when in sorrow’s hour,
Helpless I feel its pow’r?
Then, now and always, hold Thou my hand.
2 Hold Thou my hand, O Lord, to give me kindly warning,
When trials come my faith in Thee to prove;
Come friend or foe, O Lord, at midnight or at morning,
Safe I’ll abide in Thy unchanging love. [Refrain]
3 Hold Thou my hand, O Lord, when shades of night are falling,
When o’er my eyes their curtains gently fall;
The through the dark, O Lord, I’ll hope to hear Thee calling,
E’en then to be my Light, my Life, my All. [Refrain]
