Intro: Eb Gm Fm Bb

Verse:
Ab              Bb
Two months is too little
Eb               Gm
They let him go, they had no
Ab        Bb
Sudden healing
Ab             Bb
To think that providence would
Eb                   Gm                Ab
Take a child from his mother while she prays
     Bb        Bb
Is appalling


Ab              Bb
Who told us we'd be rescued
Eb               Gm                    Ab 
What has changed and why should we be saved
     Bb
From nightmares
Ab              Bb
We're asking why this happens
Eb        Gm              Ab 
To us, who have died to live
       Bb     
It's unfair

Chorus:
Bb            Eb           Gm         Ab
This is what it means to be held, how it feels
         Bb        Eb              Gm
When the sacred is torn from your life
Ab          
And you survive
Bb            Eb           Gm         Ab
This is what it is to be loved, and to know
         Bb        Eb              Gm
That the promise was when everything fell
Ab         Bb    Bb
We'd be held


Ab              Bb
This hand is bitterness
Eb               Gm                    Ab 
We want to taste it, let the hatred numb
     Bb
Our sorrow
Ab              Bb
The wise hand opens slowly
Eb         Gm              Ab 
To lillies of the valley and 
     Bb
Tomorrow

Chorus:
Bb            Eb           Gm         Ab
This is what it means to be held, how it feels
         Bb        Eb              Gm
When the sacred is torn from your life
Ab          
And you survive
Bb            Eb           Gm         Ab
This is what it is to be loved, and to know
         Bb        Eb              Gm
That the promise was when everything fell
Ab         Bb    Bb
We'd be held

Bridge 
Dm       A     F       C
If hope is born of suffering
Dm       A     F       C
If this is only the beginning
Dm                 A
Can we not wait for one hour
         Dm          Bb 
Watching for our Savior
