I have come to this ocean
And the waves of fear are starting to grow
The doubts and questions are rising with the tide
So I'm clinging to the one sure thing I know

I will hold on to the hand of my Savior
And I will hold on with all my might
I will hold loosely to things that are fleeting
And hold on to Jesus
I will hold on to Jesus for life

I've tried to hold many treasures
They just keep slipping through my fingers like sand
But there's one treasure that means more than breath itself
So I'm clinging to it with everything I am

Like a child holding on to a promise
I will cling to His word and believe
As I press on to take hold of that
For which Christ Jesus took hold of me

Hold on for life

    It's our response to continually and totally depend on the lord jesus christ for all aspects of our life.. It's personal.. ^^

    Hold on to jesus to me is to keep him and what he has done in my life and who he is, what he did and what he wants of me, at the top of my priorities at all times and in all circumstances. Especially in situations where i am not at ease or nervous or fearful. I.e when i am "in the world". Like peter when he got out of the boat and started to walk on water - i want to keep my minde and thoughts on jesus and his strength to keep me up.
