1 When I first found Jesus something o’er me stole,
Like lightning it went thru me, and glory filled my soul;
Salvation made me happy, and took my fears away,
And when I meet old Satan to him I always say:

Chorus:
"I am determined to hold out to the end,
Jesus is with me, on Him I can depend,
And I know I have salvation, for I feel it in my soul,
I am determined to hold out to the end."

2 Satan was so angry, said he’d soon be back,
Just let the path get narrow, and he will lose the track;
But I’m so full of glory, my Lord I always find,
And I just say to Satan, "Old man, get thee behind." [Chorus]

3 This old-time religion makes me sometimes shout,
I don’t have time to gossip nor any time to pout;
They say that I’m too noisy, but when these blessings flow,
I shout, O hallelujah, I want the world to know. [Chorus]

4 When I hear the trumpet sounding in the sky,
And see the mountains trembling, to heaven I will fly;
For Jesus will be calling, there’ll be no time to mend,
With joy I’ll go up singing, "I’ve held out to the end." [Chorus]
