They said I wouldn't make it, They said I wouldn't be here today. They said I'd never amount to anything. But I'm glad to say, that I'm on my way, And I'm going more and more each day. There were many, that started out with me, But now, they've gone astray. But I'm still holding on. I'm still holding on. I'm still holding to his hand. You see when I was young, I gave God my hand, And i told him to lead the way. Tho the road has been rough And the goings been mighty tough, still Still I ain't going nowhere, I'm right here to stay. Tho I've been talked about and oh I've been criticized. I had to wipe many tears from my eyes. But I'm still holding on. I'm still holding on. I'm still holding on to his hand.
Chorus: (And I'm still, holding on) I'm still holding on. (Yes I'm still in God's holy plan.) (I'm still holding on) I'm still holding on And I'm bound for the promise land. (I will never, never let go of His hand) I'll never- never let go of your hand.
Through all trials and tribulations. (Repeat Chorus)
