Christ My Song - 1237

What thou hast (Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

What thou hast.

"Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast,
that no man take thy crown."(Revelation 3,11)

  1. What thou hast,
    hold it fast:
"Let no man take thy crown."
    Watch and pray:
    thus the day,
the day will be thine own. PDF - Midi

  2. But beware;
    do not dare
to trust thy wicked heart.
    false it is;
    look to this,
or else expect to smart.

  3. Christ alone
    keeps his own;
he keeps them safe from harm.
    In his care,
    safe they are:
for mighty is his arm.

  4. His is love,
    far above
what human tongue can teach;
    when we try,
    'tis too high
for human thought to reach.

  5. Happy day,
    when we may
behold the Saviour near;
    then to be
    safe, and free
from sin, from pain, from fear.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 630.
