“Take My Hand, Precious Lord,” and Lead Me to the Right Way

“Take My Hand, Precious Lord,” and lead me to the right way for I do not know what I am doing. Sometimes we are unaware of the things that are happening around us. The more we think of ourselves the more we push people away.

In this situation where we have no control over the things around us, let us not hesitate to ask the help of the Lord. The Lord is the only one who can help us, and enlighten our hearts and minds to see the good side of every situation.

About the Song

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

Featuring the lyrics of the song shows that the narrator asks the Lord’s hand to lead his life into a brighter one. This only shows how we need God in our day to day lives. Sometimes, we might not understand His will and that is the time to trust in Him more. We must always remind ourselves that we have the most powerful living God, so in every battle we have encountered, losing will never be an answer.
