Hold the Fort (Guitar Solo)

Hold the Fort – Guitar Solo
This is a great hymn of the faith showing the Christian’s battle against the world. Our blessed hope is that Christ is coming back soon to “deliver us from this present evil world” (Galatians 1:4). Fight the good fight! Our God will perform the good work that He has started in us until the day of Christ.

Refrain: “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! See the glorious banner waving! Hear the trumpet blow! In our Leader’s Name we triumph over every foe. Fierce and long the battle rages, but our help is near; Onward comes our great Commander, cheer, my comrades, cheer!Written by Philip P.

Lyrics:
Ho, my comrades, see the signal, waving in the sky!
Reinforcements now appearing, victory is nigh.
Refrain:
“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!
See the glorious banner waving! Hear the trumpet blow!
In our Leader’s Name we triumph over every foe.
Fierce and long the battle rages, but our help is near;
Onward comes our great Commander, cheer, my comrades, cheer!
