  • Hold it all together
    Everybody needs you strong
    But life hits you out of nowhere
    And barely leaves you holding on

    And when you're tired of fighting
    Chained by your control
    There's freedom in surrender
    Lay it down and let it go

    So when you're on your knees and answers seem so far away
    You're not alone, stop holding on and just be held
    Your world's not falling apart, it's falling into place
    I'm on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
    Just be held, just be held

    If your eyes are on the storm
    You'll wonder if I love you still
    But if your eyes are on the cross
    You'll know I always have and I always will

    And not a tear is wasted
    In time, you'll understand
    I'm painting beauty with the ashes
    Your life is in My hands

    So when you're on your knees and answers seem so far away
    You're not alone, stop holding on and just be held
    Your world's not falling apart, it's falling into place
    I'm on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
    Just be held, just be held

    Lift your hands, lift your eyes
    In the storm is where you'll find Me
    And where you are, I'll hold your heart
    I'll hold your heart
    Come to Me, find your rest
    In the arms of the God who won't let go

    So when you're on your knees and answers seem so far away
    You're not alone, stop holding on and just be held
    Your world's not falling apart, it's falling into place
    I'm on the throne, stop holding on and just be held
    (Stop holding on and just be held)
    Just be held, just be held
    Just be held, just be held Writer/s: Bernie Herms, Mark Hall, Matthew West

  • Frankline Mukabwa from Nairobi KenyaI love casting crowns music, it carries unique messages that makes one stick to almighty, whenever I listen to such music I'm spiritualy transformed ,thanks to casting crowns for the good work, God bless you.
  • Kevin Hale from Independence, MoMy son, Robbie Hale, and I are singing this song at church (today). My wife, Jan Hale, to whom I 'be been married for 32 years, has developed Stave IV stomach cancer. It's turned out world upside down. She's a real fighter, much stronger than I am. Also our Children's Minister has an older brother in the last stages of brain cancer. Others in our church are facing their own "storms" right now, as well. Please pray we can keep our eyes focused on the cross, as mentioned in the song.
    I have been blessed more than you can ever know by your music since you and Casting Crowns first started recording. Thank you and God bless you all.
