"Precious Lord, Take My Hand" Sung by Rev. Dr. Thomas A. Dorsey

Gary North reminds us that "the death of his wife and daughter in childbirth in 1932" gave us "a song that remains one of the most beloved gospel songs" in his article about one of his contemporary disciples, who "makes money the old-fashioned way: by pleasing customers" — Is Profit Un-Christian?

The definitive version of Thomas A. Dorsey song is this rendition by Marion Williams, which never fails to move me, especially around the 6:00 mark — Thomas A Dorsey: Precious Lord. That said, if I saw and heard such goings-on at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, I'd likely walk out. Or maybe not.

I loved Mr. Dorsey's comment at 2:05 "I've been thrown out of some of the best churches . . ."
Priceless . . .

That line struck me, too.
