Hold to God's Unchanging Hand

Representative Text

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 his hand, God’s unchanging hand.
Hold to his hand, 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,
If to God you have been true,
Fair and bright the home in Glory
Your enraptured soul will view. [Refrain]
