Sweet Jesus Take My Hand - Poem by Patricia McAteer

When I'm down and out and lonely, and my heart is filled with fear,
And my cross is far too heavy, with troubles I can't seem to bear.

Sweet Jesus take my hand.

When the night is dark and dreary, and the hill is far too steep,
Lord keep me in your footsteps though thunder and lightening streaks.

Sweet Jesus take my hand.

There is comfort in your touch Lord, salvation as I gaze in your eyes,
Your presence is all that is needed, As I faithfully walk by your side.

Sweet Jesus take my hand.
