SONG LYRICS:

TAKE MY HAND PRECIOUS LORD
Words and Music by Thomas A. Dorsey Precious Lord, take my hand Lead me on, let me stand I'm tired, I'm weak, I'm lone Through the storm, through the night Lead me on to the light Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home When my way grows drear precious Lord linger near When my life is almost gone Hear my cry, hear my call Hold my hand lest I fall Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home 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'm tired, I'm weak, Lord I'm worn Through the storm, through the night Lead me on to the light Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

"Take My Hand, Precious Lord" is a gospel song written by Thomas A. Dorsey in 1932. The melody, although credited to Dorsey, was taken from a 1844 hymn entitled, "Maitland," by American composer, George N. Allen (1812-1877).

The song has been recorded by many artists including Mahalia Jackson (for whom the song was written in mind), Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and Elvis Presley and is included in many Catholic and protestant hymnals and songbooks, often known, simply as "Precious Lord". The most haunting recording is by Lonnie Donegan with the Chris Barber Jazz Band on Tempo label.

YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE
Words and Music by Rodgers & Hammerstein

When you walk through a storm
hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At the end of a storm is a golden sky

And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.

Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never, ever walk alone.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart

And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never, ever walk alone.

"You'll Never Walk Alone" is a song written by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II for their 1945 musical, Carousel. It was sung in the original show by Christine Johnson and later Jan Clayton with chorus. It is sung in the movie by Claramae Turner (although the weeping Shirley Jones first tries to sing it, but cannot), and later reprised by Ms. Jones and a chorus.

In the musical, the song is sung after the death of the lead, Billy Bigelow, to give courage to Julie Jordan, pregnant at the time, and is reprised in the final scene to encourage a graduation class of which Louise (their daughter) is a member. As a result, it has become a standard, sung by graduation classes in the United States.

The song is also sung at football clubs around the world, where it is performed by a massed chorus of supporters on matchday; this tradition began at Liverpool F.C. in the early sixties and later spread to several other clubs.

The song was recorded by many artists, first charting in 1945 in a version by Frank Sinatra (#9 on the Billboard charts). The great tenor Mario Lanza conducted by Constantine Callinicos sang it in 1950. It was a #1 R&B hit for Roy Hamilton in 1954. Gerry & The Pacemakers sent it to #1 in the UK Singles Chart in 1963. Patti LaBelle and the BlueBelles had a #34 charting version in 1964. Elvis Presley's version got to #90 in 1968.
