about

My parents wedding photo of their crossed hands juxtaposed with their 50th anniversary photo of the same pose inspired this song. Wedding rings became more tarnished, hands more worn, but the story of love, trust and faithfulness in tackling all the ups and downs in life shone.
The song was also a reflection of finding that hand through all phases of life. We need people at different times in our life, and how lucky we are if we find them.

lyrics

When it’s hard, to understand,
You just hold on to what you can.
Memories fade, but one stays true…

The love of a mother,
Is unlike another,
You’ll surely uncover,
Is there to guide you.

Chorus:
Hold my hand,
Hold my hand through it all.
Hold my hand,
And together we won’t fall…

As years move on, you find the one,
You hold on close ‘til life is done.
Memories fade, but one stays true…

The love will be flowing,
The seeds you’ll be sowing,
Hard times you’ll be knowing
The love will guide you.

Chorus

The call is here, the mind at ease,
The time is right, no need to grieve.
Memories fade, but one stays true…

The love you have given
Will always keep livin',
All things are forgiven,
His Hand will guide you.

Chorus
