(dwight yoakam)

Written and performed for my mother, ruth ann, without whose love and support I would not have survived at three months or thirty years of age. your hands will always guide my heart.

Chorus:
Hold on, hold on, hold on to god
And not the ways of the world
Hold on, hold on and put your trust
In his everlasting word
Hold on, hold on, hold on to god
In this life's storm-tossed sea
Cling to jesus, his lifeline
It will salvation bring

Satan shall lead down a pathway of sin
Away from your heavenly home
With many great wonders, many great signs
Deceiving all but the strong

Chorus:
Hold on, hold on, hold on to god
And not the ways of the world
Hold on, hold on and put your trust
In his everlasting word
Hold on, hold on, hold on to god
In this life's storm-tossed sea
Cling to jesus, his lifeline
It will salvation bring

Be not misled by miraculous deeds
Performed in the name of the lamb
For he shall return as a thief in the night
To claim his own once again

Chorus:
Hold on, hold on, hold on to god
And not the ways of the world
Hold on, hold on and put your trust
In his everlasting word
Hold on, hold on, hold on to god
In this life's storm-tossed sea
Cling to jesus, his lifeline
It will salvation bring
