We all feel dejected at times but I assure you that none of the said strugglings are impossible to overcome. The scriptures teach us that hope is the anchor of our souls (Ether 12:4). The adversary, Satan, wants us to let go of hope. No amount of negativity can destroy true hope anchored in Jesus Christ. He is the bright light to guide us out of our disorientation. The only way for us to become un-anchored is to distance ourselves from the influence of Christ.

This song teaches that when you feel like letting go is when you most desparately need to hang on. By persevering you prove to yourself that you still have hope in a brighter tomorrow despite your hopeless feelings. You may feel that 'all is shattered' and 'all your hope is gone' but you must remember that it is part of what you have been called and prepared to struggle through. Everything has its purpose.Hang onHang onWhen all is shatteredWhen all your hope is goneWho knowsHow longThere is a twilightA nighttime and a dawnWe breakWe bendWith hand in handWhen hope is goneJust hang onHang on
'There is a twilight, a nighttime, and a dawn'. Life is full of ups and downs and even though "weeping may endure for a night...joy cometh in the morning" (Psalms 30:5). You need to faithfully endure this 'Race of Life' as 'we break [and] we bend'. We are promised that Christ will turn our "mourning into dancing...and [gird us] with gladness" (Psalms 30:11). As we hang on 'hand in hand' with the Savior and those that we love we will experience eternal felicity.
