Sweet Promise Is Given

548 – Sweet Promise Is Given
1.
Sweet promise is give to all who believe’
“Behold I come quickly, Mine own to receive;
Hold fast till I come; the danger is great;
Sleep not as do others; be watchful, and wait.”

REFRAIN:
“Hold fast till I come;” Sweet promise of heaven’
“The kingdom restored, to you shall be given.”
“Come, enter my joy, sit down on My throne;
Bright crowns are in waiting; hold fast till I come.”

2.
We’ll “watch unto prayer” with lamps burning bright;
He comes to all others a “thief in the night.”
We know he is near, but know not the day’
As spring shows that summer is not far away.”

3.
Yes! this is our hope, ’tis built on his word’
The glorious appearing of Jesus, our Lord;
Of promises all, it stands as the sum:
“Behold I come quickly, hold fast till I come.”

165 – Ahadi Tamu
“Hold Fast Till I Come”

1
Ahadi tamu kwa waamini,
Tazama nakuja upesi sana.
Uwe imara, hatari kubwa:
Ndugu usilale, bali ukeshe.

Chorus
Uihifadhi imani yako,
Dunia mpya itatolewa
Njoo ingia furaha yangu;
Taji zinangoja; Uwe imara.

2
Tatakesha na kutoa sala;
Atakuja kama mwivi kwa wengi;
Ya kwamba yu karibu twajua,
Ila hatujui ni siku gani.

3
Tunategemea Neno lake,
Ambalo latangaza kuja kwake,
Tumaini letu ni ahadi:
“Naja karibuni, uwe imara.”

165
