--My name is Tyler Spence.  I play bass at a small
church in Orofino, ID.  This is a regular song we do,
and it's my favorite.  So here it is.

Blessed Jesus Hold My Hand

C
As I travel thru this pilgrim land 
           F                     C
there is a friend who walks with me


Leads me safely thru the sinking sand 
          Dm              G7
it is the Christ of Calvary;
C
This would be my prayer, dear Lord
                    F             C
each day to help me do the best I can
                        Am              
For I need Thy light to guide me day and night,
C              G7         C
Blessed Jesus, hold my hand.


Chorus:


Jesus (blessed Jesus), hold my hand (hold my hand)
  F                            C
I need (yes I need) Thee every hour  (Thee every hour)


Through(Oh through) this pilgrim land (this pilgrim
land)
   Dm             G7    
protect me by Thy power (thy saving power)
C
Hear (oh hear) my feeble plea ( my feeble plea)
    F                             C
Oh Lord (dear Lord), look down on me ( look down on
me)
                          Am
When I kneel in prayer, I hope to meet you there,
C             G7      C
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.
Chorus:
When I wander thru the valley dim 
toward the setting of the sun
Lead me safely to a land of rest
if I a crown of life have won 
I have put my faith in Thee, dear Lord
that I may reach the golden strand 
There's no other friend on whom I can depend, 
Blessed Jesus, hold my hand.
Chorus:
 C                        Am
When I kneel in prayer, I hope to meet you there,
C             G7      C
Blessed Jesus hold my hand.
