Capo on 1st Fret

Intro: D D/F G A   X2

G             A
Two months is too little
D                D/F         G
They let him go, they had no
          A     G
Sudden healing 

G             A
To think that providence would
D                D/F                G
Take a child from his mother while she prays 
Is appalling

Who told us we'd be rescued
What has changed and why should we be saved
From nightmares

We're asking why this happens
To us, who have died to live
It's unfair

                D           D/F          G
This is what it means to be held, how it feels
         A         D              D/F
When the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
A               D           D/F          G
This is what it is to be loved, and to know
         A         D              D/F
That the promise was when everything fell
     G       A
We'd be held

Verse: Same chords as verse 1

This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it, let the hatred numb
Our sorrow
The wise hand opens slowly
To lillies of the valley and 


Bridge -- this part I'm not sure of at all.

I LOVE your tab...and it matches the song very, very well when played along with it. I started working on the bridge to help out:
[Em] [C] [D] [D/F]
If hope is born of suffering
[Em] [C] [D] [D/F]
If this is only the beginning
[Em] [C] [D] [D/F]
Can we not wait, for one hour
[Em] [C] [D/F]
Watching for our savior

I tried the other version of Held and found it difficult for me to play(I'm not exactly a proffesional guitar player=) ) I really like this song and was relived to find this tab. I was actually able to play it! It matched the song well!

I think the D/F chordo should be replaced with a Bm
