Held

Sung on June 2, 2006 at Nicholas' Memorial Service by Linda Freitas


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 when everything fell we'd be Held

This hand is bitterness we want to taste it,
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 when everything fell we'd be Held

If hope is 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-"when everything fell, we'd be Held"

We'd be Held
And this is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was when everything fell, we'd be Held

This is what it means to be Held!
