406. Hold to God's Unchanging Hand

1 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!

2 Trust in Him who will not leave you,
Whatsoever years may bring;
If by earthly friends forsaken,
Still more closely to Him cling! [Refrain]

3 Covet not this world’s vain riches,
That so rapidly decay;
Seek to gain the heav’nly treasures,
They will never pass away! [Refrain]

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