Hey, heard you were up all night
Thinking about how your world ain't right
And you wonder if things will ever get better
And you're asking why is it always raining on you
When all you want is just a little good news
Instead of standing there stuck out in the weather

Oh, don't hang your head
It's gonna end
God's right there
Even if it's hard to see Him
I promise you that He still cares

[Chorus]
When the waves are taking you under
Hold on just a little bit longer
He knows that this is gonna make you stronger, stronger
The pain ain't gonna last forever
And things can only get better
Believe me
This is gonna make you stronger
Gonna make you stronger, stronger, stronger
Believe me, this is gonna make you Stronger

Try and do the best you can

Hold on and let Him hold your hand
And go on and fall into the arms of Jesus
Oh, lift your head it's gonna end
God's right there
Even when you just can't feel Him
I promise you that He still cares

[Chorus]

'Cause if He started this work in your life
He will be faithful to complete it
If only you believe it
He knows how much it hurts
And I'm sure that He's gonna help you get through this

When the waves are taking you under
Hold on just a little bit longer
He knows that this is gonna make you stronger, stronger
The pain ain't gonna last forever
In time it's gonna get better
Believe me
This is gonna make you stronger

    Amazing song! This track dispels all my fears and helps me boast in this amazing saviour we have who is stronger than anything we can ever face. Above all it helps me boast in my heavenly father's love for me and how through his sovereignty, he works all things together for good.

    I can relate to the line "he knows how much it hurts. " it allows you to realize that he knows exactly what you are going through, and that if you hold on to his love, he will always bring you out a stronger person

    This song really hit home, even at my age (lets just say i am not a 20 year old) it made me feel like holding on even when things get tough. I pray it really helped people to the extent it was intended.
