Natalie Grant – Held lyrics

Two months is too little.
They let him go.
They had no sudden healing.
To think that providence would
Take a child from his mother while she prays
Is appalling.

Who told us we'd be rescued?
What has changed and why should we be saved from nightmares?
We're asking why this happens
To us who have died to live?
It's unfair.

Chorus:
This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we'd be held.

This hand is bitterness.
We want to taste it, let the hatred numb our sorrow.
The wise hands opens slowly to lilies of the valley and tomorrow.

[Chorus:]
This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we'd be held.

Bridge:
If hope is born of suffering.
If this is only the beginning.
Can we not wait for one hour watching for our Savior?

[Chorus:]
This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we'd be held.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know, that the promise was when everything fell, we'd be held
This is what it means to be held.

    This song rips my heart out. The first time I heard it we were driving home from the hospital after Hannah was born. She was not breathing when she was born because the cord was wrapped so tightly. I remember Frank with tears streaming down his face, eyes closed and quietly praying/crying out to God. As I cried "Oh, God, Oh God...!" I remember that moment so vividly and how the Lord just literally held us in a moment that felt surreal. Driving home, hearing that song, I began to feel horrible guilt for the babies that don't make it past that moment, no matter how hard the parents pray, and I cried the whole way home(I was really emotional anyway). But since then, I have tried to be focused on how delicate and fragile life is and that He really does hold us everyday in every feasible way.

    My niece told me about this song and that we needed to listen to it. My daughter went into labor 3 months early, the Drs stopped the labor for 2 weeks but on May 18th our lil angel came into this world, but after 9 hours we lost her. It's so hard to believe the words that I tell my daughter. God won't put more on us than we can handle, but I know we will survive. This song says it all.

    Many time in life we suffer sorrows and heartbreak. We will think how can this be? , I don't deserve this. Why me? We later come to realize that in gods word he never told us bad things would never happen, never told us we would not have heart aches and hurt. What he did tell us is that "i will never leave you nor forsake you". When we have these situations he is holding us like a father would hold his little heart broken child. With love and tenderness.

    We lost our only son five years ago. This was the most difficult time ever in our life. It was very hard to accept this fact, but time is a healer. You will never stop thinking of the loved ones you have lost, but the thoughts change with time, and they become better, you thing of those good times you had together. I thank God because, they are not gone for ever, we shall meet them, if we keep the faith. This song is awesome.

    I had a miscarriage last year. The baby had never developed in the womb, there was nothing there. They called it a blighted ovum. This year I found out that I was pregnant at the same time of year. I was excited and scared. We had tests done and everything looked great. When I went for my first ultrasound, there was our baby, but no heartbeat. We went back a week later and it was confirmed, no heartbeat. We have struggled so much this time because we were able to see our baby this time, and nothing can explain what happened, why wasn't it's heart beating? I was having a hard time accepting it, and I was very angry. Looking for some peace, I had downloaded a bunch of christian music and was listening to it on my way to a conference. This song came on and I cried. I will never understand why I have lost two children, but I am so thankful that god has promised to never leave me and that there is nothing that I will ever go through alone. This song is helping me get through this time, I play it all of the time now.
