Hold on - there will be a day


Jeremy Camp : There Will Be A Day

Songwriters: Camp, Jeremy Thomas


I try to hold on to this world with everything I have

But I feel the weight of what it brings, and the hurt that tries to grab

The many trials that seem to never end, His word declares this truth

That we will enter in this rest with wonders a new


But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings

That there will be a place with no more suffering


There will be a day with no more tears,

no more pain, and no more fears

There will be a day when the burdens of this place,

will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face


But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always


I know the journey seems so long

You feel you’re walking on your own

But there has never been a step

Where you’ve walked out all alone


There will be a day with no more tears,

no more pain, and no more fears

There will be a day when the burdens of this place,

will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face


But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always


Troubled soul don’t lose your heart

Cause joy and peace he brings

And the beauty that’s in store

Outweighs the hurt of life’s sting


I cant wait until that day

where the very one I’ve lived for always

will wipe away the sorrow that I’ve faced

To touch the scars that rescued me

from a life of shame and misery

this is why, this is why I sing


There will be a day with no more tears,
no more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place,
will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face


Thinking about my friend Erinne today, and the burdens that she bears. Unbearable, were it not for Jesus. Hang on, my friend. We are praying. There will be a day . . .

But one of the benefits of blogging, Heather, a way to help lift others' burdens. Thanks for the encouragement to all who may have struggles. And my thoughts to your friend, too.
