When My Steps Are Slow And Weary


When my steps are slow and weary,
Shadows o’er me cast,
And the way seems long and dreary,
Jesus holds me fast.

Refrain:
He will hold me fast
Till my journey’s past;
Ransom’d by His precious blood,
Jesus holds me fast.

Oft when storms and clouds surround me,
He has held me fast;
With His strong right arm around me
Jesus holds me fast. [Refrain]

When my faint heart dreads the morrow,
He will hold me fast;
When my spirit bows in sorrow,
Jesus holds me fast. [Refrain]

When the summons, “Come up higher,”
Reaches me at last,
Face to face I’ll see my Saviour:
He has held me fast. [Refrain]
