Hanging On

It’s a small, weary feeling you carry day and night
Against a vast expanse of time, trouble, and exhaustion.
You’re at the mercy of circumstances that somebody else controls.
You feel jerked and tossed back and forth like a rudderless boat.
Lost for direction or answers,
You’re still moving, but you don’t quite know where…
You’re still seeking,
But sometimes you forget what the questions were in the first place.

Yet something keeps you hanging on –
A voice that says, “I’m here, be strong,”
A prayer of faith, a nighttime song
Of hope that says, “This won’t be long.”
Someone keeps you hanging on.

At the darkest part of your night, the Light of the World still shines…
Faithfully, stubbornly beckoning you home.
Home to a peace that passes all understanding.
Home to a faith that refuses to sink.
Home to a connection to those who believe –
First in God, then in you – and who watch over you, often unawares.
Though nothing may have changed in the wind or waves,
His voice still calls, I’m still the way.

Something keeps you hanging on –
A voice that says, “I’m here, be strong,”
A prayer of faith, a nighttime song
Of love that says, “You still belong.”
Someone keeps you hanging on.

At some point in time, we all reach a point
Where the easiest thing to do is give in and assume
That the past defines the future and the circumstances define the person.
But hope tells you a different story,
Of truth and grace and redemption for misplaced hearts.
And that relentless voice of hope and truth declares
That you’ve been destined for a greater glory –
Transformed from death to life – from darkness to light.

Something keeps you hanging on –
A voice that says, “I’m here, be strong,”
A prayer of faith, a nighttime song
Of hope that says, “This won’t be long.”
Of love that says, “You still belong.”
Someone keeps you hanging on.
