I will trust in You and know that You are with me forever
I'll confide in You 'cause You're the only answer that matters
Even in the darkness, You will be my light
Even when I'm hopeless, You will be my guide
I will not be shaken, I will not be moved
Even in the chaos, I know that You're good

What was a contribution to an inspirational football movie now transforms into a song of praise for God, with Wells as the ideal singing partner. The tune is both immediately recognizable and entirely new through its metamorphosis.

The "Hope Mix" provides a spacious backdrop for the two talented singers, who sound wonderful together. Check H.E.R. and Tauren Wells below, and enjoy this fresh look at "Hold Us Together".
