Just Be Held Lyrics

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

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

  • Barb says:

    This song has come out just when I need it the most. My husband has lost his job and his employer is fighting unemployment. At his age, my husband can’t find another job. It’s all on me now. Wait a minute, “just be held”, it’s not all on me, God’s got this. All I need to do is let Him hold me. All I need to do is just be held. Praise God!

  • I woke up this morning very stressed and thinking of a decision to be taken about an eye operation….if it goes wrong I could be blind. I felt I couldn’t cope with this and family problems. I cried to Jesus…the words JUST BE, HELD came into my head. I had heard it before but didn’t know who sang it….the Lord answered….Casting Crowns. I looked it up on You Tube played it. The words are just right for me. God is in control. And I am being HELD in his ARMS. We have a wonderful God, Thank you Casting Crowns for these beautiful words of this beautiful song which had lifted me up today.PRAISE GOD.
