Hold On – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Hold On by Nicky Chiswell features on EMU Music’s album Worthy.
All the characteristics of Chiswell’s work: sound poetic lyrics and a strong melody.

The lyrics:
Verse 1
We have this treasure in jars of clay
To show all power is God’s
We are afflicted in every way
But we will never give up
Struck down…but not destroyed
Hold on for His glory
Chorus 1
Let’s take up our cross
Let’s take up His word
And hold out the Light of life
to this world
Light up the dark
Make Jesus known
He’s always with us
Hold on
Verse 2
We believe and so we speak out
But it’s not about us
We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord
He has shone in our hearts
Struck down…but not destroyed
Hold on for His glory
Bridge
And though our bodies are wasting away
Our inner selves are renewed everyday
And though our bodies are wasting away
Our inner selves are renewed everyday
Struck down…but not destroyed
Hold on for His glory
Verse 2
Let’s take up our cross
Let’s take up His word
Let’s hold out the Light of life
to this world
Light up the dark
Make Jesus known
He’s always with us….

Let’s take up our cross
Let’s take up His word
And hold out the Light of life
to this world
Light up the dark
Make Jesus known
He’s always with us….
Hold on
