Just Be Held Lyrics

Hold it all together
Everybody needs you strong
But life hits you out of nowhere
And barely leaves you holding on

And when you’re tired of fighting
Chained by your control
There’s freedom in surrender
Lay it down and let it go

So when you’re on your knees and answers seem so far away
You’re not alone, stop holding on and just be held
Your world’s not falling apart, it’s falling into place
I’m on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
Just be held, just be held

If your eyes are on the storm
You’ll wonder if I love you still
But if your eyes are on the cross
You’ll know I always have and I always will

And not a tear is wasted
In time, you’ll understand
I’m painting beauty with the ashes
Your life is in My hands

Lift your hands, lift your eyes
In the storm is where you’ll find Me
And where you are, I’ll hold your heart
I’ll hold your heart
Come to Me, find your rest
In the arms of the God who won’t let go

  • Sam says:

    My grandpa recently passed away, and my family kept looking to me for the strength to get through it. I was getting exhausted from making sure everybody was okay, and then this song came on the radio. God reminded me that I can be held that He wanted me to be held instead of me holding everyone else. It reminded me that Jesus is still reigning no matter what situation I am in.

  • Andrea Happel says:

    I was shared this song by a friend a day before I realized how much I needed God in my life. the next night I received Christ into my heart. it was all because of the message in this song that I found my way to God. I got to see Casting Crowns in concert just last month which was a dream I NEVER thought would come true and I got to hear this song sung live. It touched my heart in a way I can’t even begin to put into words. Thank you for writing this song. It totally changed my life.
