Full Text

1. Take my hand, dear Father,
Lead me safely through;
For the gate is narrow,
And the way is new.

Chorus:
Take my hand, oh, take it,
Hold me close to Thee;
For with Thee is safety,
Hold then, hold Thou me.

2. Take my hand, dear Father,
Lest I meet a snare,
And my feet should stumble
While I'm unaware. [Chorus]

3. Take my hand, dear Father,
Be my guard and guide;
Nought shall ever harm me,
While I'm near Thy side. [Chorus]
