HOLD THE FORT…

Hi everyone, trust today’s service was super.
This post is a short one, I will be posting something like this every sunday and I’ve decided to tag it Songs $ Hymns. So here’s the deal, I will write a song I really like, and my thoughts on it and the good part is you can send me a song or hymn as well, that you really like and trust me, it’ll be here. Deal? Leggo!!

So the song for today, a hymn actually is titled, ‘Ho! My Comrades, see the signal’ but I decided to give it ‘Hold the fort’ after all, it’s my blog right? Loool! More importantly, I gave it that title because it inspired this post. For those who do not know the hymn, here it is, you can read the lyrics, for those who know it, please sing along. For those who think hymns are just too boring, ah, I say you are missing out on so much manna o, hymns take the message straight home. Anyone can pray amiss o, but to sing amiss?? No way! Whatever you do, please let this speak to you.

HO! MY COMRADES, SEE THE SIGNAL

Ho, my comrades! See the signal waving in the sky!
Reinforcements now appearing, victory is nigh!

“Hold the fort, for I am coming,” Jesus signals still;
Wave the answer back to heaven, “By thy grace we will.”

See the mighty host advancing, satan leading on;
Mighty ones around us falling, courage almost gone!

“Hold the fort, for I am coming,” Jesus signals still;
Wave the answer back to heaven, “By thy grace we will.”

See the glorious banner waving! Hear the trumpet blow!
In our Leader’s name we’ll triumph over ev’ry foe.

“Hold the fort, for I am coming,” Jesus signals still;
Wave the answer back to heaven, “By thy grace we will.”

Fierce and long the battle rages, but our help is near;
Onward comes our great commander, cheer, my comrades, cheer!

“Hold the fort, for I am coming,” Jesus signals still;
Wave the answer back to heaven, “By thy grace we will.”

Here is the conclusion of the whole matter, the night is darkest when it’s almost dawn, victory is nigh, now is not the time to give up!
Jesus is calling out to you today, do not give up! hold the fort, for He is coming! In His name alone, we will triumph over all foes! People are giving up every where and compromising but our help is near, therefore cheer up, by His grace, you can stand, regardless of how fierce and long the battle is!

Yes, you can!!!

Have a beautiful week.
