For My Mom the day after Valentines Day

For my mom and my two sisters – may you and I be encouraged to sing this song. And for our church family, this is another song for worship this Sunday, Feb. 19, 2017!

In 2013 Keith and Kristyn Getty co-produced this song with Matt Merker. The lyrics originated with Ada Habershon (1861-1918) and were expanded by Matt. You can hear the Getty’s version below, with a beautiful violin intro of “Be Still My Soul.”

“When I fear my faith will fail
Christ will hold me fast
When the tempter would prevail
He will hold me fast
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path
For my love is often cold
He must hold me fast

Chorus:
He will hold me fast
He will hold me fast
For my Savior loves me so
He will hold me fast

Those He saves are His delight
Christ will hold me fast
Precious in His holy sight
He will hold me fast
He’ll not let my soul be lost
His promises shall last
Bought by Him at such a cost
He will hold me fast

Chorus

For my life He bled and died
Christ will hold me fast
Justice has been satisfied
He will hold me fast
Raised with Him to endless life
He will hold me fast
Till our faith is turned to sight
When he comes at last

Chorus
