Held- Natalie Grant

this is a really popular song on the christian radio here.. it's a real wrencher... i always feel like crying when i hear it but the chorus is really uplifting.... it's a really easy song with a sweet piano riff for the track with great strings... *tears*

"Held" (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?
we're 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 is born of suffering
of this is only the beginning
can we not wait for one hour
watching for our savior?

This is what it means to be held
and 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
you were held
