Take My Hand
Take my hand eternal Father
For my heart cries when I fail You;
Lift me up when I am broken
Make me whole together true.
Cheer me up when I am chastened
Grant me yet another chance;
Dust me down and set me onward
Lighter steps to leap and dance.
Take my mind and reconcile me
To the past I took for granted;
All whose trust I long have squandered
Love estranged and friendship grieved.
Crown me with your own compassion
Wreathe me in your tender care;
Let me seek your long lost people
May they learn that You are there.
Take my life O Saviour Jesus
Let me speak and act sincerely;
Love each soul whom You have died for
Your command fulfilled in me.
Father Son and Holy Spirit
Life and power are Yours to give;
Hear this prayer that I now offer
Healing grace within me live.
Lead my soul to everlasting
Sound the trumpet for me still;
Grant me safe into your presence
To complete your perfect will.
While I walk my pilgrim path way
Take my hand Lord take my hand.
