When I fear my faith will fail

When I fear my faith will fail,
  Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
  He can hold me fast.
  He will hold me fast,
  He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
    He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold,
  He will hold me fast;
For my love is often cold,
  He must hold me fast.
I am precious in His sight,
  He will hold me fast;
Those He saves are His delight,
  He will hold me fast.
He'll not let my soul be lost,
  Christ will hold me fast;
Bought by Him at such a cost,
  He will hold me fast.

Beautiful, powerful song. When my soul is worried, and I realise I'm focussing on worldly things, I sing this song and fix my eyes back onto the Lord Jesus Christ and His Will, instead of mine.

I love the lines:

I am precious in His sight.

Those He saves are His delight.

He’ll not let my soul be lost.

Bought by Him at such a cost,

He will hold me fast.

"I can destroy your faith in less than 30 mins" a work colleague said to me one morning. Then this lovely hymn flooded my mind and brought calm, joy and peace to my soul.

Oh Lord! When I fear my faith failed. But thank You Lord that You will hold the fast. There is no one like You who loves me so much, now my heart is crying, knowing that You are the One who cares for me. My mouth doesn't have words to describe how much You mean to me, I can only say that I love You! Praises to You Lord Jesus!

Lord hold me fast. Hold me fast Dear Lord! Because my career occupies my time, wordly pleasures attract my soul, the reputation deludes my heart and money deceives my mind then the needs of earthly materials wear out gradually my strenght. O Lord hold me fast! Lest my faith will fail. Mighty Lord hold me fast!
