Sunday Lyrics – Hold me Jesus

By glblguy

When I first became a Christian I began listening to contemporary Christian music. The quality and style of the music was very different then, but a few artists stood out in the crowd and many are still very popular today. Names to come to mind are Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Stephen Curtis Chapman just to name a few. One other that I’m sure would be on the list if he was still alive was Rich Mullins. Rich Mullins was my favorite artist and I still enjoy listening to him today.  Unfortunately, Rich was killed in a car accident on September 19, 1997. He was only 41.

Rich truely captured the essense of Christian music, with smooth, clean vocals, and unique and professional sound and powerful lyrics that really made you think and reminded us of how awesome God truly is. (btw, Michael W. Smith has incredibly powerful version of Awesome God).

While it’s hard to pick just one favorite song of Rich’s, I guess mine would be Hold Me Jesus. You can just feel the emotion in his voice. The song is a great song to listen to when life get’s tough. Below are the lyrics and her’s a link to the video.

Well, sometimes my life
Just don’t make sense at all
When the mountains look so big
And my faith just seems so small

So hold me Jesus, ’cause I’m shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won’t You be my Prince of Peace

And I wake up in the night and feel the dark
It’s so hot inside my soul
I swear there must be blisters on my heart

Surrender don’t come natural to me
I’d rather fight You for something
I don’t really want
Than to take what You give that I need
And I’ve beat my head against so many walls
Now I’m falling down, I’m falling on my knees

And this Salvation Army band
Is playing this hymn
And Your grace rings out so deep
It makes my resistance seem so thin

You have been King of my glory
Won’t You be my Prince of Peace

    I know this song well, and I like that it is so real.

    I think my favorite of his would have to be Creed. They played it on the loud speaker at camp every morning with the wake up call. It’s part of the soundtrack of my youth.

    Beautiful lyrics…helpful lyrics…have been reading Andrew Murray’s,
    ‘Waiting on God’, for literally 3 years (I’m on my 4th or 5th round w/ it!)….a tiny little book that just keeps on giving..very, very helpful…blessings!

    Hey, I am a Christian studying at Hillsong Bible College.
    Hillsong have some of the best contemporary worship music around. They did a cover of that same sound “Awesome God” a few years back…and I have compared it to the Wichael W. Smith version and I personally think it is way better.
    Good to hear another Christian finance writer

    Oh, I adore this song! It’s so nice to see the lyrics finally, because when I used to occasionally hear it, I never knew the entire song’s words. I know God determines when someone’s taken home with him, but I sure can’t help wishing we could have had Rich Mullin’s music for longer.

    Oh! What a wonderful feeling to be there in the arms of God… I remember another song…ie; Sheltered in the arms of God… God is truly an awesome God…Gospel music is very special to me…it is the time that I can I can rejoy with God… I do a special ministry that uses a process called “Acrostics” in which I use each letter in the word… with God’s help,to bring a message…ie; here is an example… GOSPEL… God Our Saviour Precious Eternal Life

    The verse that supports this is: John 14th Chapter verse 6 amen…

    Music is another word that is special to me and I love to sing too

    MUSIC… My Undefiled Salvation Is Christ

    The verse that supports this is: 1st Peter 1st Chapter verse 4

    So I will sing praises to my God, Jesus Christ the only answer for a world that is going out of control… My God is still in control!

    As this world goes on its way, God will return to straighten it out

    My God is real, I can feel him in my soul…another favorite song of mine… I just enjoy Gospel Music that praises God…
