Description

A BEAUTIFUL setting of the old gospel text. Not the hymn tune you know! Kenton turns this familiar text into a perennial favorite for your choir and congregation!

"Coe's original a cappella setting of "Precious Lord" to a Thomas A. Dorsey text was a showstopper of warmth and intimate beauty."

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 am tired, I am weak, I am worn;
Through the storm, through the night, lead me on to the light,
Take my hand, precious Lord, lead me home.
