Hold Me Tight

Hold Me Tight, by Anna Olson, written 6-19-12.  I think this shall turn into a song, but not sure yet.  I’ve been going through some tough stuff, but God just showed me his face when I was writing.  Ta-da!

 

All these little things keep going wrong!

I reach out, Father, but I can’t see you!

I’m pouring out my soul in song,

But I’m reaching, reaching—where are you?

 

My whole trust is in you, my Savior;

I know you are there, but I can’t tell anymore!

You saw this mountain before time began,

Before I tripped on this rock and it tore.

 

Take my hands and pull me close,

Hold me tightly in your arms.

I am safe when I am there,

For you protect me from harms.

 

I cry out to you in tomorrow’s uncertainty,

Though it be a minor detail in your eyes.

I throw out my hands to trust you’re there,

But I need help, for I can’t by myself, I realize.

 

I see you standing and waiting for me,

You hold out your arms for a hug.

I run to them as fast as I can,

For you have given my doubtful heart a tug.

 

Take my hands and pull me close,

Hold me tightly in your arms.

I hear your truth when I am there,

That you protect me from harms.

 

In your arms, my enemies can’t get me

When you hold my gaze, I believe no lies.

When I’m with you, I feel stronger

I read the compassion in your eyes.

 

When your eyes meet mine you don’t look away

Though there’s motion and distraction all around.

You take my chin and draw my attention,

For you speak volumes but without sound.

 

Take my hands and pull me close,

Hold me tightly in your arms.

I am safe when I am there,

For you protect me from harms.

 

Take my hands and pull me close,

Hold me tightly in your arms.

I hear your truth when I am there,

That you’ll protect me from harms.
