Hold Fast Till I Come

Verse 1

Sweet promise is given to all who believe—
“Behold I come quickly, Mine own to receive;
Hold fast till I come; the danger is great;
Sleep not as do others; be watchful, and wait.”


“Hold fast till I come,” sweet promise of heaven—
“The kingdom restored, to you shall be given.”
“Come, enter My joy, sit down on the throne;
Bright crowns are in waiting; hold fast till I come.”

Verse 2

We’ll “watch unto prayer” with lamps burning bright;
He comes to all others a “thief in the night.”
We know He is near, but know not the day—
As spring shows that summer is not far away.

Verse 3

Yes! this is our hope, ’tis built on His word—
The glorious appearing of Jesus, our Lord;
Of promises all, it stands as the sum:
“Behold I come quickly; hold fast till I come.”
