Hold On!

This poem is inspired by a negro spiritual from John Work

Hold On!

I’m holding on to Jesus’ Almighty Hand - He lifts me up from the ash heap so I can stand - I’m holding on to His Hand as tight as I can - His strength is mine - He will not let me fall - He is the greatest King of all - Hold on, Hold on - when all others are down - Hold on for His eternal crown - His way is the only way - as we keep the faith day by day - each morning keep joy, love and peace in your heart - knowing with Him we can live and never depart - come one - come all - take the Hand that is always reaching out to you - lay your problems aside - He knows just what to do -

Hold on!

Hold on when the storms of life arise - He is the One who walks on water to save - and says to the sea, wind and waves - Peace be still - Hold on - He is coming - Help is on the way - in His sheltering arms we can rest, abide and forever stay - let us look to the hills from whence comes our help - He hears the faintest cry - and says to us

Hold on, I am coming!

About the Poet
I was born in Lexington County, SC. I lived in Jacksonville, Florida for many years.I recently moved back home to my home town, Columbia, SC. I have one daughter, Kimberly. I now have two brothers. One went to be with the Lord in January, 2010. My Mom went to be with the Lord, Memorial Day May 28, 2012. Among the things I am grateful for and remembering about her is my salvation. She was a strong passionate woman of God all of her life and a beautiful loving Mother. I was saved and baptized in the ocean in Rota, Spain. What an experience that was! Holy Spirit chased me and drew me to Himself, while I was alone in another country. I surrendered to the Lord, and His peace flooded my soul. It was so beautiful. I am so happy he saved me and redeemed me. I am so happy to share these poems from His heart and mine. Poetry is a release and has inspired and encouraged me and many who have read my poetry. I was blessed to write for a number of years on Crossway Publications and had over 300 poems that I wrote on the site. God has increased my gift with more beautiful poetry. In 2005 my poetic writings seemed to catch the fire of God and have a deeper meaning. I thank God for this chance to share my poetry with all. God Bless...
