Jill Phillips Album: Writing on the Wall Track: Hanging On
Hanging On Lyrics
About the song: This is a song for all of us who like to be in control. All of my striving and planning and best intentions are never enough to make things unfold the way I would want them to. This is a song about trusting God no matter what the outcome and putting an end to all of that needless striving!
Lyrics: The weight I fastened on trying to make my world run Almost pinned me to the floor I could not orchestrate one solitary day And the more I worked I found my efforts all in vain
I believe that I need to let go of these things To be free So help me stop this hanging on
All my worry got was more of what I did not want A love of power and control Every hour running kept me in my starting place When I finally rested I began to win this race
There is only so much I can do with these two hands Precious is the freedom when I finally understand That I need to let go of these things
