  • When you're afraid
    I'm right beside you
    When you're in the dark
    I'll come and find you
    There is no door
    I'll leave unopened
    And there is no chance
    I'll leave it broken

    So hold on, hold on
    Don't let go
    Hold on, hold on
    I'll be your hope
    I'll be your lifeline
    I'll never stop fighting
    So hold on, hold on
    Hold on to me
    Hold on to me

    If there's a prayer
    I'm gonna pray it
    When there's an answer
    I'll be right here waiting
    And there ain't a stone I won't turn over
    A weight too heavy on my shoulder
    A fire that I won't walk through
    You know I got you, I got you

    So hold on, hold on
    And don't let go (don't let go)
    Hold on, hold on
    I'll be your hope
    I'll be your lifeline
    I'll never stop fighting
    Believing
    So hold on, hold on
    Hold on to me, yeah (hold on to me, hold on to me)
    Hold on to me, yeah (hold on to me, hold on to me)

    Don't know if you're listening
    But if you can hear me

    Just hold on, hold on
    And don't let go
    Hold on, hold on
    I'll be your hope
    I'll be your lifeline
    And I'll never stop fighting
    Believing
    So hold on, hold on
    Hold on to me Writer/s: Karen Kosowski, Karen L Kosowski, Mickey Guyton, Victoria Banks

  • Catherine Todd from Lake Atitlan, GuatemalaMore about her allergic reaction before writing the song:

    "Prior to writing my song ("Hold On", cowritten with Karen Kosowski and Victoria Banks), I had ingested some chips that caused a full-on allergic reaction," Guyton explained to Billboard prior to a Nashville screening of the film, which opens wide April 17. "I had to have an EpiPen, an ambulance came, and I was deathly ill. I have never been allergic to anything in my life. Even after the allergic reaction was treated, I was still sick for an entire day.” Despite her doubts that she and her co-writers would come up with anything useable given how bad she felt, they wrote the song in 30 minutes. “That allergic reaction was just like a godsend, which is crazy because the song is for a faith-based film,” she says. “It just feels like God has played a part in it."
