Verse 1
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

He will hold me fast
He will hold me fast
For my Saviour loves me so
He will hold me fast

Verse 2
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

Verse 3
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

We are raised to eternal life with him who will never let us go.
