When Through Lifes Strange Windings Your


When thro’ life’s strange windings your pathway shall lie,
When compassed by evil you stand,
Just follow His footsteps; He’ll lead you aright,
Hold fast to the conquering hand.

Refrain:
Hold fast to the conquering hand,
Hold fast to the conquering hand;
Ye soldiers of Jesus, as victors you’ll stand,
By holding the conquering hand.

When trials beset you, be strong to endure
March on thro’ the enemy’s land;
“The sword of the Spirit” wield bravely and well,
Hold fast to the conquering hand. [Refrain]

Jehovah the Mighty defendeth His own.
Bright angels around you shall stand;
Go forth with a shout, for the vict’ry is sure,
Hold fast to the conquering hand. [Refrain]

O magnify ever His wonderful name
Who victor in heaven doth stand;
Ye servants of Christ, sound His praises abroad,
Hold fast to the conquering hand. [Refrain]
