Jesus, Hold My Hand

Yesterday I had two different appointments fall through. This gave me some time to get into God’s presence and hang out. I pulled out one of my old hymn books from an old Baptist church I used to go to and played around for an hour with some of my favorites. 

One of my favorite songs of all the hymns is Jesus Hold My Hand. When you get both vocal parts going, it literally feels like you’re in Heaven. It’s awesome to hear this great song sang with a lot of voices.

I decided to try something new. Since this is a fast upbeat song, I wanted to slow it down, throw some contemporary chords at it and give it an ear shot with a new style. I really like it. So I wanted to share it with you. I hope you like it too.

I do apologize for the bad vocal notes. I haven’t been feeling well all week. But you don’t need excuses!

Verse 1
As I travel through this pilgrim land
There is a friend who walks with me
Leads me safely through the sinking sand
It is the Christ at Calvary. This would be my prayer dear Lord each day
To help me do the best I can
For I need Thy light to guide me day and night
Blessed Jesus hold my hand.

Jesus hold my hand
I need thee every hour
Through this pilgrim land
Protect me by thy power.

Hear my feeble plea
O Lord look down on me
When I kneel in prayer I hope to meet you there
Blessed Jesus hold my hand.

Verse 2
Let me travel in the light divine
That I may see the blessed way
Keep me that I may be wholly Thine
And sing redemption’s song some day

I will be a soldier brave and true
And ever firmly take a stand
As I onward go and daily meet the foe
Blessed Jesus hold my hand.


Verse 3
When I wander through the valley dim
Toward the setting of the sun
Lead me safely to a land of rest
If I a crown of life have won
I have put my faith in You dear Lord
That I may reach the golden strand
There’s no other friend in whom I can depend
Blessed Jesus Hold my hand
Chorus When I kneel in prayer I hope to meet you there
Blessed Jesus hold my hand…
