Hold to God's Unchanging Hand
Words by Jennie Wilson
Music by F.L. Eiland

Psalm 89:13
Thou hast a mighty arm:  strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.

          Time is filled with swift transition,
          Naught of earth unmoved can stand,
          Build your hopes on things eternal,
          Hold to God’s unchanging hand.

            Chorus
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand,
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand;
            Build your hopes on things eternal,
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand.

          Trust in Him who will not leave you,
          Whatsoever years may bring,
          If by earthly friends forsaken
          Still more closely to Him cling.

            Chorus
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand,
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand;
            Build your hopes on things eternal,
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand.

          Covet not this world’s vain riches
          That so rapidly decay,
          Seek to gain the heav’nly treasures,
          They will never pass away.

            Chorus
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand,
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand;
            Build your hopes on things eternal,
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand.

          When your journey is completed,
          If to God you have been true,
          Fair and bright the home in glory
          Your enraptured soul will view.

            Chorus
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand,
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand;
            Build your hopes on things eternal,
            Hold to God’s unchanging hand.
