My Hands are Holding You

This song has been playing on Klove and the words are Strong... By Your Side by Tenth Avenue North

Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don't turn away

Why are you looking for love
Why are you still searching as if I'm not enough
To where will you go child
Tell me where will you run
To where will you run

And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And please don't fight
These hands that are holding you
My hands are holding you

Look at these hands and my side
They swallowed the grave on that night
When I drank the world's sin
So I could carry you in
And give you life
I want to give you life

i heard this song on klove too. it really touched my heart. i am so glad you posted this on your sight. i did not know the name of the song or the name of the artist. it came on when god was really dealing with me about these thigns i hold on to that i think will bring me compfort or joy. how i have looked for love in all the wrong places and how he will be the only one/thing to fill those empty places, not the things of this world. how i am getting to know him , not know of him, but know him and have him change my life and free me of those things that bind me. how he is transforming and renewing my mind to live an abundant life by his will not mine. thank you so much. had you not posted this i would not have been able to find it on itunes and download it so i could again, have god touch my heart. thank you. k

Hi, I don't know you, but I was looking up this song on Google and it brought me to your blog. Just wanted to say that this song blessed me on a rough day.

Oh, and I love that version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow, too. It's by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, no joke.

Thanks again - and blessings.

I guess this blog is no longer used, but I just listened to that song, was looking it up online and I love it too.

God bless you...
