Hold My Heart is a song by Tenth Avenue North. It was released as the third single off of their album, Over and Underneath, in 2009.

MeaningEdit

“I wrote ‘Hold My Heart’ with two friends, Phillip LaRue and Jason Ingram. Phillip and I at the time were both going through separate situations, but a really rough time. [We were] just grappling to understand why God would let certain things happen. We had lunch that day and we were talking about it and the conclusion we came to is really what the bridge says. It says, ‘There’s so many questions without answers, but your promises remain.’ Basically what that is saying is you know what? Sometimes we aren’t going to get the answers we want, but we still have God’s promises and the tough part of that is when Jesus said to us, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you,’ but your whole world feels like he’s done exactly that, it is no small thing to hold onto the truth and cling to that truth. ‘Hold My Heart’ is a psalm. It’s like Psalm 13, it’s saying, God I’m clinging and holding on and I just don’t know how much longer I can go, so come and hold my heart.” - Mike Donehey (lead singer of Tenth Avenue North)[1]

Lyrics[2]Edit

Lyrics


How long must I pray

Must I pray to you

How long must I wait

Must I wait for you

How long till I see your face

See you shining through


I’m on my knees

Begging you to notice me

I’m on my knees

Father will you turn to me


One tear in the driving rain

One voice in a sea of pain

Could the maker of the stars

Hear the sound of my breaking heart

One life that’s all I am

Right now I can barely stand

If you’re everything you say you are

Would you come close and hold my heart


I’ve been so afraid, afraid to close my eyes

So much can slip away before I say goodbye

But if there’s no other way

I’m done asking why


I’m on my knees

Begging you to turn me

I’m on my knees

Father will you run to me


One tear in the driving rain one voice in a sea of pain

Could the maker of the stars

Hear the sound of my breaking heart

One life that’s all I am

Right now I can barely stand

If you’re everything you say you are

Would you come close and hold my heart


So many questions without answers your promises remain

I can’t see but I’ll take my chances to hear you call my name

To hear you call my name


One tear in the driving rain

One voice in a sea of pain

Could the maker of the stars

Hear the sound of my breaking heart

One life that’s all I am

Right now I can barely stand

If you’re everything you say you are

Would you come close and hold my heart
