HE WILL HOLD ME FAST

1 When I fear my faith will fail, Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail, he will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold; he must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast, he will hold me fast;
For my Saviour loves me so, he will hold me fast.

2 Those he saves are his delight, Christ will hold me fast;
Precious in his holy sight, he will hold me fast.
He’ll not let my soul be lost; his promises shall last;
Bought by him at such a cost, he will hold me fast.

He will hold me fast, he will hold me fast;
For my Saviour loves me so, he will hold me fast.

3 For my life he bled and died, Christ will hold me fast;
Justice has been satisfied; he will hold me fast.
Raised with him to endless life, he will hold me fast
Till our faith is turned to sight, when he comes at last!

He will hold me fast, he will hold me fast;
For my Saviour loves me so, he will hold me fast.

THERE IS A HOPE

1 There is a hope that burns within my heart, that gives me strength for every passing day;
A glimpse of glory now revealed in meagre part, yet drives all doubt away:
I stand in Christ, with sins forgiven; and Christ in me, the hope of heaven!
My highest calling and my deepest joy, to make his will my home.

2 There is a hope that lifts my weary head, a consolation strong against despair,
That when the world has plunged me in its deepest pit, I find the Saviour there!
Through present sufferings, future’s fear, he whispers “courage” in my ear.
For I am safe in everlasting arms, and they will lead me home.

3 There is a hope that stands the test of time, that lifts my eyes beyond the beckoning grave,
To see the matchless beauty of a day divine when I behold his face!
When sufferings cease and sorrows die, and every longing satisfied.
Then joy unspeakable will flood my soul, for I am truly home.
