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 sorrow The wise hands 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
