Lyrics

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

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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