Hi Sunset - Today must be your lucky day!

Found Karen's MyPage site where you can hear the song AND download it if you want, read the lyrics etc to this and other songs.

Here's the link ....

And here's the lyrics. Sadly the link from above for the lyrics didn't work so I downloaded the song and wrote them out for you by hand. Hope all my efforts bring you joy and happiness today.

It's been one of those days
If anything could go wrong it went wrong
I know I'm feeling sorry for me
There's a lot of self-pity going on
Tomorrow I will be okay
The dawn will bring a brand new day
I'm sure by then I'll be fine
Lord today I really need a friend
I know that you would understand
Would you hold me while I cry

I take a lot of your time
When I should be strong
I should be standing by now when it's you I'm leaning on
You've always kept me safe from harm, like a child in your arms
You've cradled me through hardships faced in life
Lord it's just one of those days I've been fobbed in every way
Will you hold me while I cry?

I try to be strong but if anyone can fall apart, I fall apart
I run back to you again and you heal my broken heart
You have truly been a friend, reaching out to lend a hand
Lord when you could have passed me by
I'm asking for your strength today
Lift my spirit Lord I pray
Will you just hold me while I cry

I take a lot of your time when I should be strong
I should be standing by now when it's you I'm leaning on
You've always kept me safe from harm like a child in your arms
You've cradled me through hardships faced in life
Lord it's just one of those days
I've been fobbed in every way
Will you hold me while I cry

You've always kept me safe from harm
Like a child in your arms
You've cradled me though hardships faced in life
Lord it's just one of those days
I've been fobbed in every way
Would you hold me while I cry?

Ooooh, oooh, oooh.

What a beautiful song I have to say. I didn't know it nor heard it until today but while writing out the lyrics and listening to it over again, it's really grown on me. Thank you for sharing.

Take care

Thank you Karen Peck and New River, I can't remember the last time a song touched me like "Will you hold me" did. God Bless you and keep using you to spread his word through your songs. Absolutely a powerful song.

Thank you for a truly touching song, we all need to be held every once in a while especially by the Lord Jesus Christ.

this song is flat out one of my more favorite southern gospel songs!!!
i mean lets be real with each other, we all go through MANY times like this song talks about....days where we are just gloom and doom, but then Jesus just comes along does only what he can!!!
just an awesome song!!!!

if you guys liked this song in the least little bit, you all should check out "from the depths of my heart" by the Isaacs!!!
that's another good one!!

very few songs have such an impact on me, to where i'll tear up, if not cry, but these two does it to me!!!

I so needed this right now... Its just been "one of those days" today. Thanks so much for the effort of writing out the lyrics.

The lyrics are very encouraging.Thanks!

This song is so good.  It makes so much sense.

We've all seen sunny days and stormy days with our eyes AND in our lives ~ still knowing we're in the hands of the one who made everything.

... yeah, some things don't make sense sometimes and some good things come and go like a flash of lightning and just remembering that he said, "All things works together for good to them that love the Lord", brings me hope.  He is mighty!  He is in control all the time... We all need to cry once in a while... and God just knows when to just hold me while I cry.

You're all very welcome. It was a joy and a pleasure to do this and to know it brought happiness to you all was worth its weight in gold. It's not every day I get appreciated or thanked but when it happens, life feels all the more worthwhile once again.

take care everyone and who knows, might catch you in one of the other forum areas sometime.

Shouldn't it be 'Lord, it's just one of those day, I've been FOUGHT in every way'? Because that was what was in the subtitle in the Campfire Homecoming. I love this so too... The moment I listened to it, I just knew that it suits me. Thanks for the post.

i love this song, it has helped my family out a lot with dealing with my uncle's deaths, and it's such a beautiful song too =]

Thank you Ms. Karen Peck for such perfect enunciation that ESL people like my wife and I could understand your singing, and surely were very moved by the whole music with your group's excellent harmony while watching the homecoming together.

And I agree, it sounds like "I have been FOUGHT in every way" to me, too.

I love this song. It really just touches my heart in so many ways to hear this song playing and being sung. This song lefts me up when i am down. So i thank you for making such a wonderful and touching song. GOD BLESS YOU!!!

Thank you Karen Peck & New River,

I just listened to your song for the first time tonight as I was watching Bill Gaither.

I lost my wife of 31 years last year. She passed away from staph infection she got from 4 units of blood the rehab hospital gave her in Tampa, Florida. I live in Kissimmee.

I am having an unbelievable hard time coping with her loss. She definitely is in heaven and waiting for me at the south gate, she said in our anniversary card last year.

I am saved and have been for years, but sometimes it seems almost unbearable without her. When you get married, you are supposed to become "one". We did and half of my heart left when she passed.

Tonight as I listened to you sing that song, I listened to the words and just balled. Comfort came when Jesus put His arms around me. Every once in a while, I ask God to pick up my wife Debbie, my infant granddaughter, Faith and my son, Ron Jr. and give them big hugs and tell them how much my granddaughter, Patience, (Faith's identical twin) and I love them and miss them and to remind them of how much you, God, love them.

Thank you for touching my heart, not only by the words, but by the way you sang it with that loving emotion.

God bless you,

Ron and Patience

That song has always been special to me. As a mother of three young children, there is always something going on. At times I feel completely overwelmed by the circumstances. I feel like that song was written for me.

This song has been helping me through a very difficult time.  I have been replaying it for a few days now... but I believe tomorrow I will be okay. Thank you Lord
