1 When the foe assails your soul,
Just hold on to Jesus;
When sin’s billows o’er you roll,
Just hold on to Jesus.

Refrain:
Just hold on to Jesus,
Just hold on to Jesus;
He’s your friend,
On Him depend,
Just hold on to Jesus.

2 When alluring voices plead,
Just hold on to Jesus;
He will help in time of need,
Just hold on to Jesus. [Refrain]

3 When the path seems rough and drear,
Just hold on to Jesus;
He will guide you, never fear,
Just hold on to Jesus. [Refrain]
