Held – Lyrics

 

By: Natalie Grant

 

Two months is too little
They let him go
They had no sudden healing
To think that providence
Would take a child from his mother
While she prays, is appalling

 

Who told us we’d be rescued
What has changed and
Why should we be saved from nightmares
Were asking why this happens to us

 

Who have died to live, it’s unfair
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive

 

This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held
This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it and
Let the hatred numb our sorrows
The wise hand opens slowly
To lilies of the valley and tomorrow

 

This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive

 

This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held

 

If hope if born of suffering
If this is only the beginning
Can we not wait, for one hour
Watching for our savior

 

This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive

 

This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held

 

[Repeat Chorus]
