Hold Me, Jesus


This summer my husband was asked to sing "Hold Me, Jesus" in church. It wasn't a song he had sung or played before, so he practiced it a lot here at home leading up to that Sunday. As providence would have it, the week Will was practicing the song was an especially difficult week for our family. We were all weary and overwhelmed by life with a chronic illness. During that challenging week we would find ourselves singing or humming this song. Even the children joined in. The words of this song were a grace, and they spoke peace into our lives.

You may be going through trying times right now as well. This song comforted us, and I pray that it comforts you today too.

Hold Me, Jesus 
by Rich Mullins 
Well, sometimes my life
Just don't make sense at all
When the mountains look so big
And my faith just seems so small 
So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace 
And I wake up in the night and feel the dark
It's so hot inside my soul
I swear there must be blisters on my heart 
So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace 
Surrender don't come natural to me
I'd rather fight You for something
I don't really want
Than to take what You give that I need
And I've beat my head against so many walls
Now I'm falling down, I'm falling on my knees 
And this Salvation Army band
Is playing this hymn
And Your grace rings out so deep
It makes my resistance seem so thin 
So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace
