Hymn #2: Precious Lord

This is one of my all-time favorite hymns, and is particularly appropriate both for these times and for me.  I will often “decorate” hymns or even completely rework them in an improvisation style–but not this one.  The harmony and my playing is simple but the message is profoundly moving.

Precious Lord, I call to you.  Show me you are here.  Show me what I need to do.  Show me peace in this frightening and devastating time.  Take my hand, and lead me on, through the storm, through the night.
