Originally titled “Blues for Jesus” this was my first foray into the ‘blues’ genre.
It became more of a ‘because of Jesus I don’t have the blues’ kinda tune but it’s fun to play and use the congregation as the ‘rhythm section’ …


Lyrics

Take This Sinner By The Hand

O Lord, take this sinner by the hand
O lord, Lord, take this sinner by the hand
Lift me up from this darkness,
Lord I know that you can…

Jesus, teach this baby how to walk
Sweet Jesus, teach this baby how to walk
Hide Your word in my heart,
Teach this child how to talk…

I was born a sinner would have died one to
Only way to salvation Lord is straight through You
You gave Your life so I might have mine and I
Praise You Lord ‘till the end of time, yeah…

O Lord, I want to thank You for the cross
O Lord, Lord, I want to thank You for the cross
And I praise You for knowing
That my soul was worth that cost…

Cause I was born a sinner would have died one to
Only way to salvation Lord is straight through You
You gave Your life so I might have mine and I
Praise You Lord ‘till the end of time, yeah…
