Touch of His Hand on Mine, The, #31a

Lyrics

Verse 1
There are days so dark that I seek in vain
For the face of my Friend Divine;
But tho’ darkness hide, He is there to guide
By the touch of His hand on mine.

Chorus
Oh, the touch of His hand on mine,
Oh, the touch of His hand on mine!
There is grace and pow’r, in the trying hour,
In the touch of His hand on mine.

Verse 2
There are times, when tired of the toilsome road,
That for ways of the world I pine;
But He draws me back to the upward track
By the touch of His hand on mine.

Verse 3
When the way is dim, and I cannot see
Thro’ the mist of His wise design,
How my glad heart yearns and my faith returns
By the touch of His hand on mine.

Verse 4
In the last sad hour, as I stand alone
Where the powers of death combine,
While the dark waves roll He will guide my soul
By the touch of His hand on mine.
