The Promised Land

Written By: Craig Lane

THE PROMISED LANDS
33 July 4, 1974
Am Em D Am Em D Am Em D F

(Verse)
Am F G F
Stay, don’t leave me now when I’m weak
Am F G F
I’m afraid to stand upon my own feet
Am F G F
Am I alone? Are you just a be-lief?
Am F G F
Is this way our lives would have us meet?

(Chorus)
Am Em D
Please take my trembling hands
Am Em D
Lead me to the promised lands
Am Em D F Am
I’ll try to under-stand what I see

(Verse)
Am F G F
It’s so hard to be-lieve
Am F G F
In God above in the timely hour of need
Am F G F
My teary eyes need so badly something to see
Am F G F
A hand to hold, some love to fill my needs

(Chorus)
Am Em D
Please take my trembling hands
Am Em D
Lead me to the promised lands
Am Em D F Am
I’ll try to under-stand what I see

(Instrumental through the verse)

(Chorus)
Am Em D
Please take my trembling hands
Am Em D
Lead me to the promised lands
Am Em D F Am
I’ll try to under-stand what I see

(Verse)
Am F G F
Oh God of love, please show me you’re more than a man
Am F G F
From dust to dust; I know it’s all part of the plan
Am F G F
But, it’s not enough to still the changing sands
Am F G F
I need to touch, to see, to feel with my hands

(Chorus)
Am Em D
Please take my trembling hands
Am Em D
Lead me to the promised lands
Am Em D F Am
I’ll try to under-stand what I see

Am Em D Am Em D Am Em D F Am
