He Will Hold Me Fast

He Will Hold Me Fast

We call this a Scripture Medley. The theme is taken from the phrase "He will hold me fast", which was used in a song produced by Getty Music. The credits are below. Various Scriptures we chosen in various calligraphy styles (Chancery cursive, script, Uncial, Black Letter, and Fraktur) and two colors to surround and support the theme. To surround the whole piece, Romans 8:38-39 is lettered in Fraktur, dark blue on light blue, to represent being surrounded by the love of God, from which nothing can separate us.

    He will hold me fast

    The LORD is good,
    a stronghold in the day of trouble;
    he knows those who take refuge in Him. Nahum 1:7

    Casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you. I Peter 5:7

    Listen to me, O house of Jacob,
    all the remnant of the house of Israel,
    who have been borne by Me from before your birth,
    carried from the womb; 
    even to your old age I am He,
    and to gray hairs I will carry you.
    I have made, and I will bear;
    I will carry and will save.  Isaiah 46:3-4

    I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of My hand. John 10:28

    Whoever comes to Me I will never cast out.  John 6:37b

    . . . underneath are the everlasting arms. Deuteronomy 33:27b

    . . . bringing many sons to glory.  Hebrews 2:10b

    For you have been a stronghold to the poor,
    a stronghold to the needy in his distress,
    a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat;

    God is our refuge and strength, a very present help
    in trouble.Therefore we will not fear . . .  Psalm 46:1-2a
