Take My Hand


Are you troubled, burdened, blue?
Take my hand.
I’ve been troubled, too,
I understand.
Where you’ve fallen, once I fell —
Let me help the clouds dispel —
Take my hand.

Others helped when I was weak,
Took my hand,
Helped me face toward the peak,
Helped me stand.
What they did, now let me do —
Pass the kindness on to you.
Someday you’ll help others, too.
Take my hand.
