You’ve got to hold on…

‘You’ve got to hold on’
Sometimes it’s hard
When you can’t see the end in sight
But you keep on telling yourself
‘You’ve got to hold on’
Sometimes …
Even when you have all the answers
Still nothing seems to add up
You keep telling yourself
‘You’ve got to hold on’
When friends have gone,
And silence reigns
The rustle of the leaves
The whisper of the wind
Softly echoes the refrain
‘Child You’ve got to hold on’
 
By the skin of your teeth,
By the seat of your pants
Through stormy gale,
And fiery furnace
I am with you…
So yes! ‘You’ve got to hold on’
‘Cos when all’s said and done
The curtain’s been drawn
When the night has passed
And the tears have dried
I promise you this my child
I promise you that you will look back
Down the passage of time
And the words, the encore
That will resonate in your heart:
Thank God the one who said to my soul
Don’t give up; don’t give in;
You’ve got to hold on’
If you are holding on, don’t give up!
If you are hoping, don’t give up hope!
 If you are believing, don’t give up believing!
For your weeping may endure for a night
But in the morning, joy will come,
Again I say, ‘You’ve got to hold on…’
Psalm 30:5
For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
