Peace Has a Hold on Me
My problems don't have a hold on me
They don't consume my mind.
My God has a hold on me
And I'm gonna be just fine.
I'm not gonna let these struggles win
Or take away my smile.
My God has a hold on me.
He's with me all the while.
These issues won't take hold of me
My God is all I need.
I have problems, but I still have peace
'Cause my God has a hold on me.
