When the waves are crashing 
And my faith is drowning 
'tho I may forget you
Hold me, Lord 

When the cliffs are steepest
And my hope is weakest 
'tho I fail to trust you 
Hold me lord. 

When dark clouds have gathered 
And my love is battered 
'tho I may desert you 
Hold me Lord.

Faith may be eternal,
Hope will last forever;
greater still is love that 
Holds me Lord.

Original tune by Jackson Henry (see below)
