Hold to God's Unchanging Hand

  • Hold to God's Unchanging Hand 2483:00

Isaiah 40

28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. 29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

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

Covet not this world’s vain riches
That so rapidly decay,
Seek to gain the heav’nly treasures,
They will never pass away. (Refrain)

Worship Suggestion:

The sound file is looped.

1. As the sound file plays the first time, (During Verse 1) discuss how the world is in the going through the challenges of change. Emphasize that we must keep

our hope in the Lord and seek His will.

2. As the song continues, (During Verses 2 - 3)

read Isaiah 40: 3-11 and  40:28-31. Let the song end. 

3. When the song restarts, sing Verses 1-3 together.
