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!

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;

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.
