Hold Fast To The Right

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

June:
Well, I gave you to God in your cradle, my boy
And I taught you the best that I knew
And as long as His mercies permit me to live
I shall never cease praying for you

June and Johnny: Hold fast to the right, hold fast to the right
June: Wherever your footsteps may roam
June and Johnny: And forsake not the way of salvation, my boy
June: That you learned from your mother at home

June:
Well, you leave us to seek your employment, my boy
By the world you have yet to be tried
But in temptations and trials you meet, my boy
May your heart to the Savior confide

June and Johnny: Hold fast to the right, hold fast to the right
June: Wherever your footsteps may roam
June and Johnny: And forsake not the way of salvation, my boy
June: That you learned from your mother at home

June:
You will find in your satchel, a Bible, my boy
It’s the book of all others the best
It will help you to live and prepare you to die
And will lead you to the gates of the best

June and Johnny: Hold fast to the right, hold fast to the right
June: Wherever your footsteps may roam
June and Johnny: And forsake not the way of salvation, my boy
June: That you learned from your mother at home
