"Hold My Heart" as written by Mike Donehey, Phillip Larue and Jason Ingram....
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, yeah?

One tear in the dropping rain
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the Maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart?

One life is 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

'Cause I'm on my knees
Begging You to turn to me
I'm on my knees
Father, will You run to me, yeah?

One tear in the dropping rain
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the Maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart?

One life is 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 dropping rain
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the Maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart?

One life is 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?

Hold my heart
Could You hold my heart?
Hold my heart

    General CommentI think this song is about when you have been holding on for so long, and you've been waiting for someone, or God, to come help you.

    General Comment"?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

    General Commentit's about a person who is emotionaly/verbily ect abused or someone in a financhial state ect "oh i can't spell today!" and there tired of being alone and tired of wondering if theres something more so there throwing it all away and asking god to take full controll cause they can't stand it anymore.
