Father Hold My Hand For Darksome


Father hold my hand;
For darksome is the way,
And through the clouds that veil my path
I cannot see the day.
I cannot walk alone by sight,
But with thee, Father, all is light.

Father hold my hand;
For rugged is the road,
And sin and Satan worketh hard
To keep my soul from God.
I cannot walk alone by sight,
But with thee, Father, all is light.

Father hold my hand;
My soul would faint and die
If in this desert-land of sin
Thou, Father, wert not nigh.
I cannot walk alone by sight,
But with thee, Father, all is light.

Father hold my hand;
And then whate’er shall come,
Safely I’ll reach my journey’s end,
And gain sweet rest at home.
I would not walk alone by sight,
For faith in thee makes darkness light.
