(Gatlin)

Information:
Larry Gatlin wrote Help Me for Elvis in 1973. Elvis recorded the tune at Stax Studios in Memphis on December 12, 1973. His single release had a 15-week stay on Billboard’s country chart in mid-1974, peaking at #6. In 1977 Ray Price had a successful recording of Help Me on Columbia Records (Columbia 10503).

Lyrics:

Lord, Help me walk another mile, just one more mile
I'm tired of walkin' all alone
Lord, Help me smile another smile, just one more smile
You know I just can't make it on my own

1. I never thought I needed help before
I thought that I could get by by myself
But now I know I just can't take it any more
With a humble heart, on bended knee, I'm beggin' You, please, help me

Come down from Your golden throne to me, to lowly me
I need to feel the touch of Your tender hand
Remove the chains of darkness, let me see, Lord, let me see
Just where I fit into Your master plan

1. (repeat)
With a humble heart, on bended knee, I'm beggin' You, please, help me
