Vern Gosdin - Jesus Hold My Hand Lyrics




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 of Calvary

This would be my prayer dear Lord each day
To help me do the best I can
For I need the 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 some day

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

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

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

    I listened to vern as I was growing up. My uncle Raeford "the man who raised me" listen to my cassette one day as I was playing verbs gospel music. He absolutely loved it. I bought him one for Christmas after that. He would listen to a lot. Uncle Raeford is in heaven now. I'm sure jesus has his hand. Best uncle and dad figure a boy could have ever asked for.

    Hey guy... When you're reposting Pastor Lawson, ya might actually listen a little more than 5 mins worth. Your titles are rarely on point. Zion4131 channel actually adheres to the topic..... Your Fallen Angels Having Sex With Women title is pathetic.... He says it one time towards the beginning and doesn't mention the topic again. You need to wake up and do it right. Or just frikkin STOP using God for a dang viewcount! Grow the hell up!

    If he didn't hold our hand we would be in Trouble. Ain't no way this old man could hold on to his hand with Satan tugging ever so hard on the other trying to pull us back out into the sinful life we came from. But he said resist Satan and he had to flee. Even Satan tempted God and the lord said "it's written Satan" and Satan had to flee. Thank you lord for Dying on Calvary that we might have everlasting life❤️

    Jesus, Hold My Hand
    Lyrics
    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
    You help me do the best I can

    Blessed Jesus, hold my hand

    Jesus, hold my hand

    Protect me by Thy power

    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' some day

    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

    Jesus, hold my hand
    'Cause I need Thee every hour
    Through this pilgrim land
    Protect me by Thy power

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

    When I kneel in prayer
    I hope to meet You there
