Today’s Worship Wednesday song comes from Keith & Kristyn Getty entitled “He Will Hold Me Fast”. WOW, what amazing and comforting words.
I don’t know if you are having a difficult time in your life right now or not, but at some point, you will and these words are very encouraging to hear.
The Gettys have this to say about this song:
From the first time we heard this song written by Matt Merker, we felt it was a unique jewel that would be a comfort and encouragement to God’s people as we live out faith in these difficult times, whether in suffering, persecution or death. It reminded us of the Spirituals and also of the hymn, “We Rest on Thee” (which inspired the missionary Jim Elliot and the title of his biography, “Through Gates of Splendor”). Interestingly, the Finish melody, “Finlandia,” is also the melodic basis of the hymn, “Be Still My Soul,” that was the favorite hymn of Eric Liddell, famous Olympic gold medalist who retired early from Sport to return to China, home of his birth, and serve as missionary.
I hope you find encouragement and rest today in knowing, that if you know HIM as your Lord and Savior, He is holding you fast today!
