Elvis Presley – Take My Hand, Precious Lord lyrics

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I'm tired, I'm weak, I'm lone
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When my way grows drear precious Lord linger near
When my light is almost gone
Hear my cry, hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When the darkness appears and the night draws near
And the day is past and gone
At the river I stand
Guide my feet, hold my hand
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on, let me stand
I'm tired, I'm weak, I'm lone
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

    One of the all-time greatest hymns! Thomas Dorsey wrote it and put it to a tune that he adapted for the song. He wrote it following a great tragedy in his life. His wife died in childbirth and then two days later the child died as well. In the middle of life's greatest pains this song gives consolation from God. God does not always move in supernatural ways to keep believers from the pain of death and tragedy, but he does promise to be with his believing children through the trials, "taking their hand," and he also promises that it won't always be life in a painful and fallen world. Jesus will return and death itself will "die" and be no more!

    I have always loved this song. It's about coming to the end of life's journey, and finding comfort and solace in the lord. The writer of this song is expressing his knowledge of the fact that he knows, at the end of this life, god has promised him everlasting peace. And that is something that those who know him are promised; it's our gaurantee of spending eternity with our divine creator in a place that is more than love, and more than happiness. :)
