Is this it?

The One Who's Been Holding to My Hand
 
Each step I take, I have Somebody with me,
He sees each deed I do, He hears each word I say,
He knows my heart, He cleanses it from every sin,
Without this friend, I would surely lose my way.

And I will not trade my Jesus for your treasures,
And I will not bow my knees to mortal man,
For I know the Heavens will be opened,
And I will meet the One who's been holding to my hand.

When I'm cast down, I know I can depend on Him,
He sees what's best for me, I need not be afraid,
He sees beyond the regions of this mortal life,
He holds my hand in His and I love Him more each day!

And I will not trade my Jesus for your treasures,
And I will not bow my knees to mortal man,
For I know the Heavens will be opened,
And I will meet the One who's been holding to my hand.

I have an MP3 file converted from cassette of Evangelist Donn Fitch and wife Judy and daughter Melanie singing this back in the 1980s, if you wish for the track, email me at:

Pretty sure this is how song goes.
Pecked it out on piano from a long lost memory, then transferred it to musescore (sheet music program)

Let me know if I made mistakes.
