They said I wouldn't make it,
They said I wouldn't be here today.
They said I never amount to anything.
But I'm glad to say, that I'm on my way,
And I'm going more and more each day.
There were many that started out with me,
But now, they've gone astray.
But I'm still holding on.
I'm still holding on.
I'm still holding to his hand

You see when I was young, I gave God my hand,
And I told him to lead the way.
Though the road has been rough
And the goings been mighty tough, still
I aint going Nowhere, I'm right here to stay.
Though I've been talked about and Oh I've been criticized.
I had to wipe many tears from my eyes.
But I'm still holding on.
I'm still holding on.
I'm still holding on to his hand.

(And I'm still)
Chorus:
I'm still holding on. (Holding On)
(Yes I'm still in God's holy plan.)
(I'm still) I'm still holding on (holding on.)
(And I'm bound for the promise land.)
(I will never) I will never let (I'll never let go of His hand.) go of His hand.
(Through trials and tribulations. I'm still)
I'm still holding on. (Holding On)
(Yes I'm still in God's holy plan. Though you've scandalized my name. I'm still.) I'm still holding on (holding on.)
(And I'm bound for the promise land.)
(I will never) I will never let (I'll never let go of His hand.) go of His hand.
(I will never) I will never let (I'll never let go of His hand.) go of His hand.
(I will never) I will never let (I'll never let go of His hand.) go of His hand.
