Please Don't Let Me Go






Please don't let me go

I've seen days
Where the nights don't end
I've seen strangers
I used to call friend

How can I begin to trust
In the fact that You'd never let me go
Been left so many times
Feel like nobody could know

The sound that my heart makes
When it starts to break
And the pain that I hate
Waits for me everyday

And yet I lie awake
Alive and still breathin'
Hopin' that this time in my life
Is just a season

Believin' the words
You spoke to Your people
How you'd never leave
Even though we couldn't see You

How You would make us prosper
Even though we couldn't pay You
Back now there's nothing I lack

Please don't let me go
If I can't have Your love
My hearts got no where to go
Only You can rescue me

Please don't let me go
I'd be lost inside a dying world
Just trying to find my home
It's with You I belong
Please don't let me go

I remember the moments life was a blur
An adolescent spirit, far from mature
I couldn't tell between a friend or a foe
So alone I remained, looked to the sky for hope


It's hard to feel alive when you're cold
It's hard to reach the sky when you're low
Sunlight is hard to find in a storm
How can I give love if my souls been torn


A broken vessel, you call it a master piece
No eye can see how deeply You're in love with me
Honestly I can't love me how You love me
But obviously there's something that You want from me


'Cause You don't want to let me go
Owner of the world but You want my soul
My heart is crying out, Lord, please take control
I need You and I don't wanna let go

Please don't let me go
If I can't have Your love
My heart's got no where to go
Only You can rescue me

Please don't let me go
I'd be lost inside a dying world
Just trying to find my home
It's with You, I belong
Please don't let me go

(Don't let me go)
Please don't let me go
(Don't let me go)
Please don't let me go

And I've seen who I could be
Without You close to me
I can't recognize that person
Staring back at me

And You've seen how my heart breaks
From the choices I have made
I know Your love can take it all away

Please don't let me go
If I can't have Your love
My heart's got no where to go
Only You can rescue me

Please don't let me go
I'd be lost inside a dying world
Just trying to find my home
It's with You, I belong

I stumbles upon this timely song this morning.  A beautiful reminder that not only will He never let me go, but He knows me so intimately that he has me "engraved in the palm of His hand."

Held.
Cherished.
Beloved.
Never alone.
Never let go.
Safe.

What better place to be?
