good times



You're a little piece of heaven
You're a golden ray of light.
And I wish I could protect you
From the worries of this life.
But if there's one thing I could tell you,
It's no matter what you do
Hold onto Jesus,
He's holding onto you.
The world will try to tell you
That might is more than right.
And beauty's on the outside
And being good's a losing fight.
But remember what I've told you
'Cause the world will make you choose,
Hold to Jesus,
He's holding onto you.
Hold on to Jesus, and cling to His love
Rest deep in His mercy,
Whenever things get rough
And don't lose sight of His goodness
And don't ever doubt this truth,
That when you hold onto Jesus
He's holding onto you.
Hear me, dear Jesus,
Rock this little one to sleep.
Keep him close when he's scared,
And give him grace when he is weak.
I know he'll stumble, but I know he'll make it through,
If you hold to him, just like you said you do.
Hold him Jesus,
And he'll hold on tight to you.
