Hymn of Praise

Hold to God's Unchanging 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

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

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

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


Hold to His hand God's unchanging hand
Hold to His hand God's unchanging hand
Build your hopes on things eternal
Hold to God's unchanging hand
