People said I'd never make it
They said I'd never see it through
But they don't know what keeps me going
I guess they never have met you
My life was in shambles
Until the day you came along
You turned my tears into laughter
Lord you gave me a brand new song

CHORUS

I'm still holding on
Lord I'll never let you go
You gave me a smile
You touched my heart you touched my soul
And the bridges that's behind me
Lord I burn them to the ground
I'm still holding on
To the best thing I ever found

Voted likely not to prosper
Was left hanging 'ore my head
You'll never count for nothing
That's what most people said
I've been known to be unsettled
I never stayed around too long
But Lord you're the treasure I've been searching for
And Lord I'm still holding on

    I lost my 3 son's in a truck wreck in 2004. I was the only survivor in that accident and this song is the very depth of my heart.. I want to be the very best for the Lord first and then stand tall in Honor of my precious soldiers. They were all Army. Please help me Lord to find the right people to connect with so I can share my story and songs to speak to others lives.

    I thank god for this song that has really touched my life,as my life was just as described in verse one. But then since i found him he changed my life and since i started out i have never regretted choosing him over my friends. Even now sometimes i feel like being tempted by the sin going round,but then now i have come too look back and i thank god that he has been helping me along the way and i'm still holding on to the best thing i ever found... God bless you... By junior in fiji...

    I think it means, staying on the narrow path to christ jesus and steering clear of the braud path of distruction, make the best of life. Also people can change, so instead of people talking about others with battles, need to be praying for those in need, for the bible clearly states that, it is a sin to see another in need, and not pray for them.

    I lost my mom 3 years ago, then wrote a song for her, called mammas never die. Well 1 year later my father was diagnosed with melenoma bone cancer, i was given a cd of the crabb family, and i learned how to play it on the guitar and sang it for my dad,he cried, as did,i, i lost him three months later,i have to hold on to my faith and belief in jesus, so i can be with both of my god fearing parents, the crabb family is awesome, god bless you all and your ministry. Thank you.

    Amen! This song touches me every time I hear it. I thank god everyday for his many blessings and for my awesome best friend forever that I go to school with. I truly believe that I am still holding on to one of the best things I have ever found.
