06. Hold My Heart

Over and Underneath
by Tenth Avenue North



 

How long must I pray
Must I pray to you
How long must I wait
Must I wait for you
How long till I see your face
See you shining through

Iím on my knees
Begging you to notice me
Iím on my knees
Father will you turn to me

One tear in the driving rain
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart
One life thatís all I am
Right now I can barely stand
If youíre everything you say you are
Would you come close and hold my heart

Iíve been so afraid, afraid to close my eyes
So much can slip away before I say goodbye
But if thereís no other way
Iím done asking why

Iím on my knees
Begging you to turn me
Iím on my knees
Father will you run to me

One tear in the driving rain one voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart
One life thatís all I am
Right now I can barely stand
If youíre everything you say you are
Would you come close and hold my heart

So many questions without answers your promises remain
I canít see but Iíll take my chances to hear you call my name
To hear you call my name

One tear in the driving rain
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart
One life thatís all I am
Right now I can barely stand
If youíre everything you say you are
Would you come close and hold my heart




Behind the Song:
ďI wrote ĎHold My Heartí with two friends, Phillip LaRue and Jason Ingram. Phillip and I at the time were both going through separate situations, but a really rough time. [We were] just grappling to understand why God would let certain things happen. We had lunch that day and we were talking about it and the conclusion we came to is really what the bridge says. It says, ĎThereís so many questions without answers, but your promises remain.í Basically what that is saying is you know what? Sometimes we arenít going to get the answers we want, but we still have Godís promises and the tough part of that is when Jesus said to us, ĎI will never leave you nor forsake you,í but your whole world feels like heís done exactly that, it is no small thing to hold onto the truth and cling to that truth. ĎHold My Heartí is a psalm. Itís like Psalm 13, itís saying, God Iím clinging and holding on and I just donít know how much longer I can go, so come and hold my heart.Ē - Mike Donehey (Tenth Avenue North)
