Held – Natalie Grant

posted by Prayables

Best Religious Music

It’s rare to be moved by a song that most of us can not personally relate to. “Held” is an exception. While other Christian artists croon about love and faith, Natalie Grant takes a chance on a ballad about the death of a new baby. It’s a beautifully written song with a soothingly soulful melody. The lyrics hit point after point on the theme of loss, “…when the sacred is torn from your life” But it’s also the lyricswords that bring promise, “…and you survive.” The best religious music brings one closer to God: Loss and songs about loss can do that, and “Held” by Natalie Grant does.

Held Lyrics – Natalie Grant

Two months is too little, they let him go
They had no sudden healing
To think that providence
Would take a child from his mother
While she prays, is appalling

Who told us we’d be rescued
What has changed and
Why should we be saved from nightmares
We’re asking why this happens to us

Who have died to live, it’s unfair
This is what it means to be held
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive

This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held

This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it and
Let the hatred numb our sorrows
The wise hand opens slowly
To lilies of the valley and tomorrow

This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive

This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held

If hope if born of suffering
If this is only the beginning
Can we not wait for one hour
Watching for our Savior

This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive

This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held

Songwriter: Christa Wells
