He Will Hold Me Fast

Original words (verses 1 and 2) by Ada Habershon. New words by Matt Merker.


When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast.
When the tempter would prevail,
He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path,
For my love is often cold;
He must hold me fast.

CHORUS
He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast.
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

Those He saves are His delight;
Christ will hold me fast.
Precious in His holy sight,
He will hold me fast.
He’ll not let my soul be lost,
His promises shall last.
Bought by Him at such a cost,
He will hold me fast.

For my life He bled and died;
Christ will hold me fast.
Justice has been satisfied;
He will hold me fast.
Raised with Him to endless life;
He will hold me fast.
Till our faith is turned to sight
When He comes at last.
