Lord I work to serve you
And I hope I've served you well
Oh - I've lived a life to join you
And now only time will tell

Oh - Take my hand when you are worried
Take my hand when you're alone
Take my hand and let me guide you
Take my hand to lead you home

Father dear father
Pulled his car to the side of the road
Looked at his children with tears in his eyes
Said life is too heavy a load

Take my hand when you are worried
Take my hand when you're alone
Take my hand and let me guide you
Take my hand to lead you home



Some days I'm struck with sorrow
Need a place to hide
There's nowhere else you can put life
But way down deep inside

Take my hand and let me guide you
Take my hand when you're alone
Take my hand and let me guide you
Take my hand to lead you home

Take my hand when you are worried
Take my hand to lead you home
Take my hand and let me guide you
Take my hand to lead you home

Take my hand...

I gave it an 8 on first time hearing.  I don't like most of his other work - which I own two albums of - too preachy of a political viewpoint.

No!  It gets played all the time, but for 10 years we all agreed not to comment on it.  You ruined our streak!

Oh wow, that name is a blast from the past. After the reminder, I dug up and listened to "Introducing the Hardline...", what a great album. Thanks for the reminder, it's been years...

Just saw Blind Boys last Friday.  Great concert.  Always a lot of fun.  Kinda wish Harper wasn't muddin up this song.
