PRECIOUS LORD TAKE MY HAND                          
 
C                      C7  
Precious Lord, take my hand
        F           Fm 
Lead me on, help me stand;
C                           Dm G7
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn.
         C               C7 
Thru the storm, thru the night 
        F         Fm 
Lead me on to the light.
        C              G7            C  
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.
 
C                 C7
When my way grows drear
         F            Fm 
Precious Lord, linger near;
        C              Dm G7
When my life is almost gone.
        C            C7 
Hear my cry, hear my call, 
        F           Fm 
hold my hand lest I fall.
        C              G7            C 
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.
