“Jesus, Hold My Hand” – Monday Musical Musings


I needed an uplifting song this morning, so I began searching lots of music. As soon as I started a song, I knew it wasn’t right. You know, the lyrics were great, but the music was a little depressing.


I liked the sound of the Singing Americans, but it took me a while to find the one song I wanted to share today. But then this old hymn popped up. And when I started listening to it, I knew it was the perfect song for today.


The lyrics are awesome, but the way these guys sing this song is outstanding. I pray that you will enjoy this as much as I did.


You may be facing a giant mountain today. If so, Jesus will walk beside you, but He will do so much more. You’ll have someone to talk to. You’ll have His righteous right hand upholding you. You’ll be comforted by His peace. You’ll find beautiful rest for your weary soul. You’ll find protection in His presence.


As you read through these words and listen to this tune, I pray that you’ll meet Jesus where you are. I pray that you will acknowledge your need for Him. And I pray that you will cry out to the One who loves you more than anyone else.


“Jesus, Hold My Hand”[i]


As I travel through this pilgrim land
There is a friend who walks with me
Leads me safely through the sinking sand
It is the Christ at Calvary.

This would be my prayer dear Lord each day
To help me do the best I can
For I need Thy light to guide me day and night
Blessed Jesus hold my hand.

Jesus hold my hand
I need thee every hour
Through this pilgrim land
Protect me by thy power.

Hear my feeble plea
O Lord look down on me
When I kneel in prayer I hope to meet you there
Blessed Jesus hold my hand.

Let me travel in the light divine
That I may see the blessed way
Keep me that I may be wholly Thine
And sing redemption’s song someday

I will be a soldier brave and true
And ever firmly take a stand
As I onward go and daily meet the foe
Blessed Jesus hold my hand.


When I kneel in prayer I hope to meet you there
Blessed Jesus hold my hand…
