1 Take my hand, my Father, hold it fast in Thine;
I am so unworthy, Thou art all divine.
I am weak and sinful, journeying here below,
Take my hand, my Father, never let it go!

2 Take my hand, my Father, hold it day and night;
Thro’ the misty darkness bring me to the light.
Keep me close beside Thee, never let me stray;
Take my hand, my Father, lead me all the way.

3 Take my hand, my Father, I am poor and blind;
I am groping, help me heav’n and Thee to find!
Keep my feet from falling to the depths below;
Take my hand, my Father, never let it go!
