1 Take hold of my hand, O blessed Christ,
And draw me close to Thee,
And thus gently lead me safely thro’
The path I cannot see.
When I reach the shining shore, the shining shore of life,
And walk on the golden strand.
When I dwell in the fullness of Thy love,
Dear Saviour, keep hold of my hand.
2 Take hold of my hand: Thou art my guide,
My Saviour, King Divine;
The way is so dark for me alone,
Oh, take my hand in Thine. [Refrain]
3 Keep hold of my hand for death is near;
Tho’ dark the lonely way,
Oh, guide Thou my weary wand’ring feet
To realms of endless day. [Refrain]Source: Crowning Day No. 3 #99
