  • Hold me now
    In the hands that created the heavens
    Find me now
    Where the grace runs as deep as Your scars

    You pulled me from the clay
    You set me on a rock
    Called me by Your Name
    And made my heart whole again

    Lifted up
    And my knees know it's all for Your glory
    That I might stand
    With more reasons to sing than to fear

    You pulled me from the clay
    Set me on a rock
    Called me by Your Name
    And made my heart whole again

    So here I stand
    High in surrender
    I need You now

    Hold my heart
    Now and forever
    My soul cries out

    Once I was broken
    But You loved my whole heart through
    Sin has no hold on me
    'Cause Your grace holds me now

    And that grace
    Owns the ground where the grave did
    Where all my shame remains
    Left for dead in Your wake
    You crashed those age-old gates
    You left no stone unturned
    You stepped out of that grave
    And shouldered me all the way (Come on)

    So here I stand
    High in surrender
    I need You now

    Hold my heart
    Now and forever
    My soul cries out

    'Cause once I was broken
    But You loved my whole heart through
    Sin has no hold on me
    'Cause Your grace holds me now

    Healed and forgiven
    Look where my chains are now
    Death has no hold on me
    'Cause Your grace holds that ground
    And Your grace holds me now
    Your grace holds me now
    Your grace holds me now
    Your grace holds me now, oh

    So here I stand
    High in surrender
    I need You now

    Hold my heart
    Now and forever
    My soul cries out (If you feel comfortable lift your hands sing it out)

    So here I stand
    High in surrender
    I need You now

    Hold my heart
    Now and forever
    My soul cries out

    Here I stand
    High in surrender
    I need You now

    Hold my heart
    Now and forever
    My soul cries out

    Here I stand
    High in surrender
    I need You now

    Hold my heart
    Now and forever
    My soul cries out

    Once I was broken
    But You loved my whole heart through
    Sin has no hold on me
    'Cause Your grace holds me now

    Healed and forgiven
    Look where my chains are now
    Death has no hold on me
    'Cause Your grace holds that ground
    And Your grace holds me now
    Grace holds me now
    Grace holds me now
    Grace holds me now

    Healed and forgiven
    Look where my chains are now
    Death has no hold on me
    'Cause Your grace holds that ground
    And Your grace holds me now Writer/s: Aodhan Thomas King, Joel Timothy Houston

  • AnonymousI just wondered what scriptures were used for reference? Specifically for the “lifted up, and my knees know it’s all for Your glory” line. Could you interpret what exactly that means please? Also what is meant by “age-old gates?”
