Precious Lord, Take My Hand

Precious Lord, Take My Hand
Words & Music by Scott Krippayne & Steve Siler

When I am exhausted
Completely poured out
And the well of my strength has run dry
When it’s so overwhelming
The needs come in waves
And there’s no way to hold back the tide
When all that I am is still not enough
When fatigue and frustration speak louder than love

Precious Lord, take my hand
Without you I’ve got no chance to do this
You alone understand
How much I need your help to get through this
And when I don’t think I can
Precious Lord, take my hand

When my heart is breaking
‘Cause I know the end
And I’m looking for someone to blame
When I’m pushed to the limit
Emotions are raw
And the anger erupts hot like flame
When every last once of patience is gone
When I feel like a failure who’s getting it wrong

Repeat Chorus

When reality is more than my shoulders can bear
Lord, give me the grace to care the way that you care

When tasks go undone and I’m aching for sleep
When there’s not enough time and there’s no time for me

Precious Lord, take my hand
Without you I’ve got no chance to do this
You alone understand
How much I need your help to get through this
And when I don’t think I can
Precious Lord, take my hand

I gave the words to Precious Lord Take My Hand to my daughter-in-law, a mom of two young ones, working full time, and in an MBA program. She’s exhausted. She started reading and began crying……

Insert tears all over the place.
