08. Donít Let Go

Peace Be Still
by Hope Darst



 

There is a comfort that will wrap around the breaking
There is a wisdom for the unknown
There is a counsel ever constant in the aching
So close, so close

Oh soul, hold on to hope and donít let go
Oh soul, just be still and know

There is a waiting that will drive the heart to hunger
There is a valley where sorrow sings
Even disappointment can return to awe and wonder
So close, so close
So close, so close

Oh, soul, hold on to hope and donít let go
Oh, soul, just be still and know (Oh, Oh, Oh)
Oh, soul, hold on to hope and donít let go
Oh, soul, just be still and know

Oh, of this one thing Iím confident
Oh, nothing will be missed
Oh, until itís good itís not the end

Oh, soul, hold on to hope and donít let go
Oh, soul, just be still and know
Hold on to hope, hold on to hope, oh, hold on to hope
It's gonna be worth, itís gonna be worth it in the end
Hold on to hope, hold on, hold on, oh

Oh, soul, hold on to hope and donít let go
Oh, soul, just be still and know
Oh, soul, hold on to hope and donít let go
Oh, soul, l just be still and know

Oh, of this one thing Iím confident
Oh, nothing will be missed
Oh, until itís good itís not the end

Oh, soul, hold on to hope and donít let go
Oh, soul, just be still and know (Oh, Oh)
Oh, soul, hold on to hope and donít let go
Donít let go

Behind the Song:
"This was the first song I ever wrote with my friends and producer, Jonathan Smith and Mia Fieldes. Mia connected us and it's the song that started turning our wheels about a future project. We actually loved the original demo so much that we honestly didnít change much for the final album version. We just polished it up a bit, but itís pretty true to where it started. And thatís really satisfying because not all songs start out that strong and make it through rounds of elimination when choosing the final album tracks. Iím so glad this one made the cut. Jonathan and Mia are so easy to write with and I love how we pushed ourselves to let this song break the traditional ďmapĒ of songs. I love how the verses paint a picture of what holding on to Hope (aka Jesus) feels like and looks like in different seasons. In the hardest moments of life, itís so easy to want to ďlet goĒ, but when we stay close to Jesus in those difficult seasons, I believe there is a supernatural peace and rest that can sustain us. My favorite line is ďeven disappointment can return to awe and wonderĒ. I have experienced this first hand through the years of walking with the Lord. Heís brought so much beauty from ashes, but I had to hold on to Jesus through the hard times to eventually get to the other side and experience His redemption and power in those situations. I hope for the listener that feels like quitting, or giving up, that this song will encourage them to hold on to Jesus, our eternal hope. That you if you anchor yourself in Him, you will get through the valleys and storms. And until things are good, hold on, donít let go." - Hope Darst

Hebrews 10:23 (NLT) Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.

Psalm 46: 10 ďBe still and know that I am GodÖĒ
