Holding On

May 27, 2020 | INSIGHTS, LISTEN, Song Presentations

I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown. (Rev 3:11)

Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his household and family if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory. (Heb. 3:6)

Stand firm and hold fast to the teachings passed on to you . . .and to the true grace of God.
(2 Thess. 2:15, 1 Pet. 5:12)

Praise the Lord for all who are being blessed and who are singing songs of praise and joy today – but I set out here to write a song that would pick up on Jesus’ encouragement to those who are feeling in any way sad, soul-weary or estranged to come to Him and rest. With great help from David Booth, the melody went through a series of stages as we worked on it together.

As the song title indicates, Holding on is the raw cry of someone who is calling and crying out to the Lord from the very depths in the face of much pain and trouble, before moving on to respond with great joy and gratitude as the Lord’s presence draws near.

David’s guitar playing combines beautifully here with Megan Topper’s lovely voice. We hope this song will bless and touch you deeply – and also be a resource to stimulate prayer for so many who are going through many and varied mills, and who urgently need grace to hold on. For all such, this song is for you.
