Representative Text

1 Amidst the cares and toils of life,
Just cling to the word of God,
If others falter in the strife,
Just cling to the word of God.
There is no book as good as this,
It shows the way of righteousness,
It opens wide the door of bliss,
Just cling to the word of God.

Just cling to the word of God,
Just cling to the word of God;
It opens wide the door of bliss,
Just cling to the word of God.

2 If friends forsake, they surely may,
Just cling to the word of God,
‘Twill guide you safely night and day,
Just cling to the word of God.
The mind of God is there in wrought,
Inspired with love in ev’ry tho’t,
The way of life can there be sought,
Just cling to the word of God.

Just cling to the word of God,
Just cling to the word of God;
The way of life can there be sought,
Just cling to the word of God.

3 The winds of doubt may fiercely blow,
Just cling to the word of God,
And doctrines false may come and go,
Just cling to the word of God.
The promises of God are true,
Salvation’s message is for you,
The story old, yet ever new,
Just cling to the word of God.

Just cling to the word of God,
Just cling to the word of God;
The story old, yet ever new,
Just cling to the word of God.

Orlando S. Grinnell was better known as a preacher than a songwriter. Still, the Wayne pastor's single hymn was a hit, not for its timeless melody but for its title. In 1921, the minister wrote a hymn for his flock to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Wayne Congregational Church. Grinnell titled it "The Little Home Church by the Wayside." http://articles.chicagotribune.com/199 Go to person page >
