The Everlasting Arms

Photo by Sagui Andrea on

Hold on to the everlasting arms
They’ll never let you go
In the arms of Jesus, you will find
The greatest love you’ve known

He’ll give you strength and help you stand
When it seems you’ve had enough
The comfort of His love is real
When the road of life is rough

When the cup is dry and you can’t go on
And you just want to hide away
The Saviour is near, He knows your need
He sees your heart’s dismay

His words are words of life and peace
When all around looks dark
A lamp to your feet, His word will be
A light upon your path

Hold on to the everlasting arms
They’ll never let you go
He’ll keep you safe from all alarm
Because He loves you so


In these challenging times, it’s a comfort to know that the Lord’s arms of love are extended to us. He wants to impart grace and strength always, knowing that “without Him (Jesus) we can do nothing” (John 15). Thank you Lord!
