“Hold On For A While” is a tender reminder to never give up holding on to God no matter the circumstance. The piece while reverent, builds to a glorious climax on the words from which the title is taken, “hold on for a while.” This piece has been exceptionally well loved for the hope and encouragement it conveys.

Text

Heaven’s gates are opened wide,
may I enter in?
Jesus has called me His child,
may I enter in?

Lord this world is not my home,
this dark and weary land.
Though rough and heavy are my trials,
by my King I’ll stand.

Weary pilgrim, weary child,
this world now revile,
Christ will come, for you are His,
just hold on for a while.

Precious is the promise now,
“I’ll come back for you,”
declared upon the olive mount,
to his faithful few.

Weary pilgrim, weary child,
this world now revile,
Christ will come, for you are His,
just hold on for a while.

-to God alone all glory is given-
