A Prayer of the Tired and Weak

Here’s a prayer from 20th century African-American gospel musician Thomas Dorsey (1899 – 1993):

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.
