“The righteous … shall hold on his way.” Job 17. 9

H. Fowler                        11.8.

1
Ye pilgrims of Zion, and chosen of God,
Whose spirits are filled with dismay,
Since ye have eternal redemption through blood,
Ye cannot but hold on your way.

2
As Jesus, in covenant love, did engage
A fulness of grace to display,
The powers of darkness in malice may rage,
The righteous shall hold on his way.

3
This truth, like its Author, eternal shall stand,
Though all things in nature decay,
Upheld by Jehovah’s omnipotent hand,
The righteous shall hold on his way.

4
They may on the main of temptation be tossed;
Their sorrows may swell as the sea;
But none of the ransomed shall ever be lost;
The righteous shall hold on his way.

5
Surrounded with sorrows, temptations, and cares,
This truth with delight we survey,
And sing, as we pass through this valley of tears,
The righteous shall hold on his way.
