The Unseen Hand:

Verse 1
There is an unseen had to me,
That leads through wave I cannot see
While going through this world of woe,
This hand still leads me as I go

I’m trusting to, the unseen hand,
That guides me through this weary land
When some sweet day I’ll reach that strand,
Still guided by the unseen hand

Verse 2
This hand has led through shadows drear
And while it leads I have no fear
I know t’will lead, me to that home
Where sin nor sorrow ere can come

Verse 3
I long to see, my Saviors face
And sing the story saved by grace
And there upon that golden  strand
Ill praise him for his guiding hand

Here is another way that i have heard the song.  Its up to you.

The Unseen hand

Verse 1

There is an unseen hand to me
That leads through ways i cannot see
While going through a world of care
His unseen hand will lead us there


Im trusting to the unseen hand
that guides me through this wearly land
and some sweet day ill reach that strand
still guided by the unseen hand

Verse 2

oh i long to see my saviors face
and sing that story saved by grace
then while upon that golden strand
ill praise him for his guiding hand.

Repeat Chorus 2X

thank u SO much I'm goign to sing this song in church today and I forgot the words and have been looking EVERYWHERE and this is the only place I could find them

I believe the words and music date back to the 1930's. I really should know more since it was written by my great-grandfather (Albert Jackson Sims). He died in 1969 before I was born. My grandmother (his oldest daughter) passed away in 2005. She was a wealth of information about countless other songs he wrote.

Rambo/Benson music published the song.

Here is the right way coming from the chorus book" The Unseen Hand".


There is an unseen hand to me that leads through ways I can not see
While going through this world of woe
This hand still leadds me as I go

I'm trusting to the Unseen Hand
That guides me through this weary land
And some sweet day
I'll reach that strand
Still guided by  the Unseen

Verse 2:
I long to see my Savior's face
And sing a song about his Saving Grace
And there upon this golden strand
And praise him for his guiding hand

This song was written and sung by Dottie Rambo it is on their album " Heart Warming" by The Rambos
Posted:  26 Sep 2007 03:41
thank you for these lyrics - i've been looking all over for them
Posted:  22 Oct 2007 21:31
thank u all very much

I have to disagree with one of the other guests about the author of "The Unseen Hand." Although Dottie Rambo is very much associated with the song, she did not actually write it. A.J. Sims of Dalton, GA wrote the song.

He was my great-grandfather. He worked in the Crown Cotton Mill, was called to preach, taught music and wrote many, many hymns. "The Unseen Hand" was published by Rambo/Benson. Although he died in 1969 before I was born, his musical tallents are still legendary in the family. "The Unseen Hand" was sung at my grandmother's funeral three years ago. It was very comforting to all of those around.

Thankfully, Dottie Rambo has been able to share it with many others over the years.

This is a wonderful song!  As a little girl we had it on an album by the Singing Cookes!  Oh Mrs. Cooke could sing that song!  Was wondering if there are any other fans of the Singing Cookes back in the seventies and eighties?

Last night as I was in bed, this song came to me.  It must have been 20 years when I heard the song sang.  You blessed my heart today by giving me the words to the song God brought to me last night.

Thank You!

Well I have figured out the verse out its played in the key of C but having trouble figuring out the chorus cant seem to get it to sound right on the first line of the chorus could some one help. Anyone intrested you can find it in the new songs of inspiration volume nine page 21

My book-- Songs of Faith has the first part of the chorus as

I'm holding to-----the unseen hand, that guides me thru----this weary land;
Posted:  28 Feb 2008 16:19
Thank you, I needed both the words anf the author.  Last night during our mid-week service, the Pastor was being inspired by the Lord and the Holy Spirit fell again upon the congregation.  It was a tremendous message of faith, healing, and the movement of God.  God moved in the service and we learned to be quiet and listen to that still small voice.  The inspiration of God was strong and during his message, the Pastor said one time, three small words that struck home, “The Unseen Hand”.  I had to do some research.
