Though you've tried it all,
In your search for the truth,
Somehow you've fallen for a lie.
You're trying to recall
The simple ways of your youth,
And your faith is strong,
And you never, never question why.
But you found out life wasn't easy,
Sometimes the answers were hard to see,
You didn't have the strength for one more try.
I'll be holding out hope to you,
Even when this world breaks your heart in two.
When your life is consumed
By your fear and your doubt,
I'll be holding out hope to you.
In the stillness of the night,
There's a voice calling you,
Seems as though you've heard it once before.
In the darkness there's a light,
And the hand to lead you through
To the hope that waits behind the open door.
And you find out life is worth living,
And the answers lay where your faith begins,
It's there you'll find the strength
For one more try.
