231. Time Is Filled with Swift Transition (Hold to God's Unchanging Hand)

1 Time is filled with swift transition,
naught of earth unmoved can stand;
build your hopes on things eternal,
hold to God’s unchanging hand.

Refrain:
Hold to God’s unchanging hand;
hold to God’s unchanging hand;
build your hopes on things eternal;
hold to God’s unchanging hand.

2 Trust in him who will not leave you,
whatsoever years may bring;
if by earthly friends forsaken,
still more closely to him cling. [Refrain]

3 Covet not this world’s vain riches
that so rapidly decay;
seek to gain the heav’nly treasures:
they will never pass away. [Refrain]

4 When your journey is completed,
God will keep the promise true;
fair and bright the home in glory
your enraptured soul will view. [Refrain]
