Holy - Justin Bieber ft. Chance The Rapper

The Experience: Feels so holy... The deep goodness of love...

The Vibe: Gratitude.

The Topic: Love. Faith.

The Tension: I'm not perfect (I hear a lot about sinners don't think that I'll be a saint) VS. I'm loved (the way you hold me feels so holy).



Music video: Justin Bieber and Ryan Destiny play a down on their luck couple whose love keeps them going long enough to find a stranger's help.

The Meaning of Holy: His love for her keeps him going. Their love is something to fight for. And all those loves are the image of something deeper: I might go down to the river 'cause the way that the sky opens up when we touch Yeah, it's making me say that the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me feels so holy. It's that experience of love that sends Justin into the arms of faith - into the source of that love: oh God runnin' to the altar like a track star. It's not mysticism. It's not going soft. It's just the acknowledgment that none of us is strong enough to love the way we sometimes do. It's a miracle. Sin only requires a sinner. But miracles... they require a miracle worker.

Ask yourself: Have you felt enough love to believe in a loving God?

Album:  - (2020)

LYRICS:

I hear a lot about sinners
Don't think that I'll be a saint
But I might go down to the river
'Cause the way that the sky opens up when we touch
Yeah, it's making me say

That the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
On God
Runnin' to the altar like a track star
Can't wait another second
'Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me feels so holy

I don't do well with the drama
And no I can't stand it being fake (No, no, no, no, no, no no no)
I don't believe in nirvana
But the way that we love in the night gave me life
Baby I can't explain

That the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
Oh God
Runnin' to the altar like a track star
Can't wait another second
'Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me feels so holy

They say we're too young and
The pimps and the players say, "Don't go crushing"
Wise men say fools rush in
But I don't know
They say we're too young and
The pimps and the players say, "Don't go crushing"
Wise men say fools rush in
But I don't know (Chance, the Rapper)

[Chance The Rapper]
The first step pleases the Father
Might be the hardest to take
But when you come out of the water
I'm a believer
My heart is fleshy
Life is short with a temper like Joe Pesci
They always come and sing your praises
Your name is catchy
But they don't see you how I see you
Parlay and Desi
Cross, Tween, Tween, Hesi hit the jet speed
When they get messy
Go lefty, like Lionel Messi
Let's take a trip and get the Vespas
Or rent a jetski
I know the spots that got the best weed
We goin' next week
I wanna, I wanna honor you
Bridegroom, I'm my Father's child
I know when the son takes the first steps, the Father's proud
If you make it to the water He'll part the clouds
I know He made you a snack like Oscar Proud
Suffer it to be so now
Gotta clean it up
Formalize the union in communion He can trust
I know I ain't leaving you like I know He ain't leaving us
I know we believe in God and I know God believes in us

'Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
Oh God
Runnin' to the altar like a track star
Can't wait another second
Oh God
Runnin' to the altar like a track star
Can't wait another second
Oh God
Runnin' to the altar like a track star
Can't wait another second
'Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me feels so holy
