The Ministry of Music

These two songs have ministered to me so much this week, and I know that there must be someone else out there who is desperate for the message they contain. No fancy videos to go with them, just simple lyrics, packed with a message of salvation. Close your eyes and let His Truth wash over you today.

There is hope. There is life. You are not alone. The Lord Himself fights for you. Take courage, my friend…  He will never leave you or forsake you, even when all others fail you. Rest in His faithfulness today!

 

Hold On (33 Miles)

I’ve been there a thousand times,
I’ve felt the rain like a thousand knives.
And it hurts,
I know it hurts.
I’ve been there like a fighter plane,
Tryin’ to fly My way through a hurricane.
And it’s hard,
I know it’s hard!

Don’t be afraid,
You’ll make it through,
Just call out to Me and I’ll come running to you!

Hold on, hold on!
When the current pulls you under,
And your heart beats like thunder.
Just give Me your hand,
And hold on, hold on!
Until the storm is over,
And I’ll be fighting for you.
Just give Me your hand and,
Hold on!

I’ll give you hope, I’ll give you faith!
And if it’s dark, I’ll light the way,
For you, for you!
By your side, until the end,
Until you’re standing tall again!
I’m here, I’ll always be here.
And if the tide, sweeps you out to sea,
When your strength is gone, and it’s hard to believe,

Hold on, hold on!
When the current pulls you under,
And your heart beats like thunder
Just give Me your hand,
And hold on, hold on!
Until the storm is over.
And I’ll be fighting for you,
Just give Me your hand!

Ooooo so…
Hold on, hold on!
When the current pulls you under,
And your heart beats like thunder
Just give Me your hand.
And hold on, hold on!
Until the storm is over,
And I’ll be fighting for you!
Just give Me your hand,
And hold on, hold on!

 

Let the Waters Rise (Mikeschair)

Don’t know where to begin
Its like my world’s caving in
And I try but I can’t control my fear
Where do I go from here?

Sometimes its so hard to pray
When You feel so far away
But I am willing to go
Where You want me to
God, I trust You

There’s a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise
If You want them to
I will follow You
I will follow You
I will follow You

I will swim in the deep
‘Cuz You’ll be next to me
You’re in the eye of the storm
And the calm of the sea
You’re never out of reach

God, You know where I’ve been
You were there with me then
You were faithful before
You’ll be faithful again
I’m holding Your hand

There’s a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise
If You want them to
I will follow You
I will follow You
I will follow You

God Your love is enough
You will pull me through
I’m holding onto You
God Your love is enough
I will follow You
I will follow You

There’s a raging sea
Right in front of me
Wants to pull me in
Bring me to my knees
So let the waters rise
If You want them to
I will follow You
I will follow You
I will follow You
