Precious Lord (Thomas A. Dorsey) Precious Lord, take my hand Lead me on, let me stand. I am tired, I am weak, I am lost Through the storm, through the night Lead me on, to lhe light Take my hand, precious Lord, and lead me home. When my way is unclear, precious Lord, linger near When my time it is almost gone. Hear my prayer, hear my call Take my hand, lest I fall Take my hand, precious Lord, and lead me home. Precious Lord, I love your name When I look back from whence I came Sometimes I'm lame, sometimes falling, sometimes alone; Friends and loved ones I love so dear They're gone, but still I'm here Take my hand, Precious Lord, and lead me home. I heard the first two verses on the New York subways from a pair of elderly ladies called the Gospel Keys, ca. 1948.; the last verse is from the singing of the Rev. Mr. Dorsey on a video called "Say Amen, Somebody". RG Recorded by Mahalia Jackson, Johnny Cash RG
