i was so filled with fear, i felt so cold and alone.
the pain was just too much to bear, i could not carry on.
then your hand reached down to me and darkness turned to light.
it was the first time i saw your marvelous light.
i will hold onto your hand, i will hold onto your hand,
as i look to the one who sets me free.
i will climb mount calvary and seek the one who died for me.
and in my time of need i will hold onto your hand.
the coldness turned to warm, loneliness disappeared.
and my pain subsided, oh, i no longer feared.
lord, you’ve brought me so far, my trust is only in you.
i know that your with me in everything that i do.
i don’t know where i am going, it’s all in your hands.
you may keep me here or bring me through foreign lands.
your hand is in mine and that’s the only thing i need.
i’ll cling to you lord, and i will follow your lead.
i will hold on, i will hold on.
and in my time of need i will hold onto your hand, your mighty hand.
