about

Some of you may know of my friend Jesse's band LoveIsElectric. I met Jesse through his music when I was just learning my way around music production, and Jesse was a godsend in this regard. He was able to help me out with all my questions, and we quickly became good friends. Last year Jesse covered my song 2008 as a present to me. Since it's his birthday today, I've decided to return the favour to him - and along with a mutual friend of ours, Malachi, I've put together a cover of my favourite song of his, a beautiful song called By The Hand. We hope you like it. Happy birthday, Jesse. You're the best!

lyrics

Crooked and weak
Like roots cut from a tree
My twisted limp physique
Needs You here with me

My fingers will lose grip
My legs beneath will trip
Lord, lead me by the hand
'Cause I can barely stand

This walk at first is awkward
I stumble and I'm crying in pain
But You gently draw me forward
And I know this isn't in vain

My fingers will lose grip
My legs beneath will trip
Lord, lead me by the hand
'Cause I can barely stand

It's OK to slip and fall
And lose your sight
'Cause Jesus Christ through saving grace
Will shape our backs upright

Guide me, God
Help me stand
In your love
By the hand
Use me, Lord
In your plans
Lead me now
By the hand
