READY TO GO

Youíre the kind of guy who never needed anyone
You've got all the answers
Now the things you've held as truth have slipped away
Itís left you desperate
But just when you thought you lost all hope
A stranger said to you

Hold on - trust His words of faithfulness
Hold on - itís time for you to rest in this
Hold on...

CHORUS: If youíre ready to go, Heís ready to lead you
To a place youíve never been before
When youíre ready to know, Heíll be right there to reach you
Heíll be a never ending source of hope to you

Everybody has to face the pains of life
There are no exceptions
Itís a never ending thorn stuck in your side
Without redemption
Even if the storms that try you
Will not fade away

Hold on - trust His words of faithfulness
Hold on - You know through Him you'll pass the test
Hold on

CHORUS

BRIDGE: He can hear you calling
When your world is falling about

Hold on - trust His words of faithfulness
Hold on - You know through Him you'll pass the test
Hold on

CHORUS
