Hold Up, Hold On, Hold Out, Hold Fast

Believe firmly,
hope joyfully,
love fervently,
pray earnestly,
walk humbly,
work diligently
and wait quietly.

Hold up,
hold on,
hold out,
hold fast that which you have received.

Still watch,
still pray,
still believe
still fight and run,
that you may obtain.

It is but a little while
and He who comes will come
and will not tarry;
it is but a little while
and your warfare is accomplished
and your iniquities shall be everlastingly separated from you
your sin and sorrows,
tears and fears,
fled and gone—
gone forever
and you meet with an unspeakable reward.

John Mason (1646 – 1694)
