Mullins Moment


The music of Rich Mullins is very special to me (as it is to many)...I sing this to Quinn sometimes and have listened to it whether things are easy or hard. Just thinking about it tonight...

Hold Me Jesus
(I Kings 19:3-13; Matthew 11:25-30)

Well, sometimes my life just don't make sense at all
When the mountains look so big
And my faith just seems so small

So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace

And I wake up in the night and feel the dark
It's so hot inside my soul
I swear there must be blisters on my heart

So hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace

Surrender don't come natural to me
I'd rather fight You for something I don't really want
Than to take what You give that I need
And I've beat my head against so many walls
Now I'm falling down, I'm falling on my knees

And this Salvation Army band is playing this hymn
And Your grace rings out so deep
It makes my resistance seem so thin

I'm singing hold me Jesus, 'cause I'm shaking like a leaf
You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace

You have been King of my glory
Won't You be my Prince of Peace
-Rich Mulllins

Quite possibly one of my favorite songs. I connect this song to our freshman year...I would sing it with all my might in my Pennington room. It still gives me chills and unspeakable comfort! Hope all is well with you, Meredith!
