Peralta Victor H. Benke, 1902 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Jesus redeemed and made me whole,
I can forget Him never;
Out of the depths He brought my soul;
Now I am His forever.

Refrain

I’m holding on, I’m holding on,
Daily in grace I’m growing;
Fast to the Rock I’m holding on,
Peace to my heart is flowing.

Great is the love of Christ my king,
Love that no pow’r can sever;
Joyful and glad my tongue shall sing,
Praise to His name forever.

Refrain

If on the Lord my care I cast,
He will forsake me never;
Firm on the Rock of Ages fast
I shall abide forever.

Refrain

He has prepared a home for me,
Over the silent river;
There with the blest I soon shall be,
There I shall dwell forever.

Refrain
