Martin Luther King Jr.: “Precious Lord, Take My Hand”

Martin Luther King Jr.: “Precious Lord, Take My Hand”

 

History mentions “Precious Lord, Take My Hand” as being one of Martin Luther King Jr’s favorite songs. We take for granted lyrics and so we at eStock Photo, think posting the lyrics are a great way to celebrate Dr. King’s birthday. 

The lyrics are full of faith, passion, imploration-the repetition of the words “lead me on” bring us back to the fact that we are NOT alone. They reflect his vulnerability and his relentless strength. Dr King embodied a courage and faith that raised him above his fears and lead him to action.  We celebrate your spirit and in a symbolic gesture we offer this post to YOUR unconditional commitment, YOUR generous heart and the immeasurable LOVE for equality.

“Take My Hand Precious Lord” Lyrics by Thomas A. Dorsey

Precious Lord, Take my hand,
Lead me on, let me stand,
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn.
Through the storm, Through the night,
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, Lead me home.

When my way grows drear precious Lord linger near
When my light is almost gone
Hear my cry, hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When the darkness appears and the night draws near
And the day is past and gone
At the river I stand
Guide my feet, hold my hand
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I’m tired, I’m weak, I’m lone
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home
