Precious Lord: New Recordings of the Great Songs of Thomas A. Dorsey is a 1973 compilation album by Rev. Thomas A. Dorsey. The recording features Dorsey's account of his life, as well as contemporary performances of his greatest works. Composer of many enduring gospel classics, Dorsey is considered to be the Father of Gospel Music. It is a collection of performances of his compositions. Dorsey appears on only two tracks: the spoken introduction to "Take My Hand, Precious Lord" and the piano accompaniment on "I'll Tell It Wherever I Go." In 2002, the Library of Congress honored the album by adding it to the United States National Recording Registry.
