1 Take, blessed Jesus, my hand in Thine,
Lead me, O lead me in paths divine;
Thine be the glory, the blessing mine,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus.

Clinging, clinging,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus,
Glory Thine,
Blessing mine,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus.

2 Teach me to walk in the King’s highway,
Teach me, O Lord, Thy commands t’obey;
Teach me to trust Thee from day to day,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus.

Clinging, clinging,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus,
Ev’ry day,
I obey,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus.

3 Teach me O Lord, precious souls to win,
Teach me to lead them from paths of sin;
Show them the way, bid them enter in,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus.

Clinging, clinging,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus,
Souls to sin,
Cleansed from sin,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus.

4 When all the labors of earth are past,
Then shall I enter the heav’nly rest,
Happy and safe in my home at last,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus.

Clinging, clinging,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus,
Danger past,
Home at last,
Clinging to the hand of Jesus.
