Lyrics

Once from my poor sin-sick soul
Christ did every burden roll;
Now I walk, redeemed and whole,
Hand in hand with Jesus.

Refrain

Hand in hand we walk each day,
Hand in hand along the way;
Walking thus, I cannot stray,
Hand in hand with Jesus.

In my night of dark despair,
Jesus heard and answered prayer;
Now I’m walking free as air,
Hand in hand with Jesus.

Refrain

From the straight and narrow way,
Praise the Lord, I cannot stray;
For I’m walking every day,
Hand in hand with Jesus.

Refrain

When the stars are backward rolled,
And His home I shall behold,
I will walk those streets of gold,
Hand in hand with Jesus.
