McDonald, Shawn - Don't Give Up Lyrics

Sometimes it is hard to go on
It's hard to see the reasons
For breathing, living, letting love guide the way
But you must hold on

Don't give up
Don't give up
Hold on for one more day

Sometimes we fall down
We get ourselves in trouble
But it's OK
Cause we still have another chance to get it right
To get it right

Don't give up
Don't give up
Hold on for one more day

I've come too far
I've seen so much
I've heard the call and felt the touch
I've tasted love that I cannot deny

Don't give up
Don't give up
Hold on for one more day

McDonald, Shawn Don't Give Up Comments
  1. Pierre Malatare

    This song is a life saver, I'm listening to this on December 1st 2019 to remind myself not to give up on life or my shitty job being homeless with a wife and 2 daughters is hard, thanks to this song I won't give up.

  2. rachel Dixon

    This song has changed me alot I know I don't go to church but I believe in God and everything like that I had a hard year this year I lost my best friend , my step dad and a lot of my siblings and friends bc they passed away and I can't talk to anyone about how I feel bc it's just going to get harder so I leason to music and sing to it or dance to it bc that's how I copied with several things bc I gave up several times and cut and almost kill myself but I know that's not the way it should be bc I still have friends that care about me and a girlfriend to I can't leave them . Yes I know I have a lot of medical problems but it's not going to stop me from being the person I want to be .

    Thank you

  14. Celina Nicole Caruso

    So because I'm a Christian I should think about not just being kind on Christmas but being kind all year and celebrating the birth of my savior who shed his blood on the cross for my sins I should not celebrate his birth!!! Um what I'm thinking actually what you may have wanted to say was if you are a Christian maybe thinking about how exactly you're celebrating this day because as a Christian just as a God loving person there's absolutely nothing wrong with praying going to church and celebrating the day by being kind to others and giving Jesus all the praise and love on that day I have to kind of wonder i'm speaking actually what you may of wanted to say was if you're a christian maybe a thinking about how exactly your celebrating this day because because Christmas is about Christ and the day he was born and as a Christian and a God loving person there is absolutely nothing wrong with giving Jesus all the praise on Christmas and the glory for the blood that he shed for not just my sins but yours too in the rest of the world what worries me is people trying to find conflict in it and fighting against celebrating Christ's birthday just because it doesn't stated in the Bible doesn't mean that it's not a beautiful kind act of love what the heck is going on with this world today is it just me or is everybody losing it just to want to argue on the internet well that's my thoughts about it and my last thought is I am a Christian and I did think about it and the only thing I have to say about it is that it's a shame that everybody in the world can't be more kind every day of their lives towards others like we do on Christmas Merry Christmas God bless and happy New Year and Praise Jesus

And I will never give up because I know I can go on to another day living for God who has endless love to give all of us and it won't ever stop. He has helped me so much through these last few years ever since I got to know him as my savior.

    im a boy. i know most people r just gonna hate on me or ignore me. but idk what to do about my friend that is a girl. she wants to suicide herself. idk if she has already done it
    someone help me....

    Faith Smith

    @Javier Sanchez Jr Is there a way I can talk to you about it?

    Paul Varghese

    +Javier Sanchez Jr Tell her that Jesus loves her. No matter what she has gone through, no matter about her past, no matter about what she is struggling with now, no matter who she is or how she looks like, Jesus still loves her. God has a plan for her. God has bought her with a price (his death on the cross for our sins) and has a plan for her to proper not to harm her, but to give her a hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11. She is the APPLE of his eye, so there is a lot to live for. Tell her that through Jesus only, she can get up and live a new life again.

    Trevor Cox

    +Heather Huffstetler its okay if you don't know :) I'm not sure what mine is either yet. Just be patient my friend! Keep talking and praying to Him. I assure you, our God who has bought us with a price has a plan for us not to be harmed but to prosper. plans to give us a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11). Along with this, its also important to realize that sometimes it's going to be harder than others. relinquish all your pain and doubt to God and know that He will always be there for you.

    Heather Huffstetler Helms

    +Trevor Cox thank you and may God bless you my friend you have made my day and saved my life

  46. Els De Smet

    Het is wel moeilijk,    Ik geef het ook (n o g) niet op


    @Els De Smet Lieve Els ik weet niet waar je doorheen gaat en uit ervaring weet ik dat het soms verleidelijk is om 'de handdoek in de ring te gooien"maar de Here draagt ons en helpt ons. Blijf vertrouwen op Hem en danken dat alles goed komt.Wees eerlijk over je gevoelens en frustraties.De Here weet wat je voelt en denkt, maar het lucht op als je ze uitspreekt naar Hem. Hij is de enige die we voor 100 % kunnen vertrouwen. We kunnen ons soms neergeslagen voelen, maar we zijn niet verslagen.In Hem zijn wij meer dan overwinnaar.

  47. Violist26

  57. Sergy Lvov

    never give up no matter what nothing can stop you cause god is with you try try and try every time

  58. 2413jonnielynn

    I love this song SO much! I remember when I was going through a rough patch & I felt myself getting distant from GOD this song came on & it felt as if He were talking to me. I started singing along with it & grasping the words; it completely touched me. GOD works in mysterious ways, dont give up! Maybe you do not believe in GOD, but you still have a purpose & some of those who open their eyes get to see that. GOD Bless :)

  59. ArcanicFire

    I may be atheist but this song is so epic. I live by this. Make the best of today so you have no regrets tomorrow. I have nothing to die for, except in protection of those I care for. Other than that, I have everything to live for.


    Atheist or not you have the freedom to listen to any kind of music. Keep that positive thinking going! We never know when our last day may be our last. 

    Joshua Rogers

    @ArcanicFire People, feeling good doesn't mean you're doing life right. There are good things we do that are considered bad by others, so how can we feel good when there are these differing perspectives on our actions? It is impossible to please everyone; should we live for ourselves then? No, there is no way we can keep ourselves completely happy. All cannot be satisfied in this world; sin has corrupted it. Life, what we should strive to accomplish, is a thing God dictates. His knowledge is infinite, combine that with his indescribable love and you have an all-powerful God who can guide each person through this world in the way that is guaranteed to satisfy everyone and bring joy. So, if you're looking out for your family or friends, trust and obey God throughout your life. How do you do this? Go to that Christian you know, they can give you a head start!

    Jesus Loves You

    I hope you find God my dear brother/sister in Christ!

    Christopher Reichert

    I hope you enter into Yeshua'slife for You! Repent and believe on His name! Then.... Don't give up! This song is intended for the worship of Yahweh and He wants you to give up! And turn to Him then it's don't give up! But until you turn from sin to God it's "give up" may the Yahweh bless you and keep you for His glory!

  60. Angel Alarcon

    Linda esta cançaooooo video excepcional!

  96. Yesenia Gonzalez

    I'm glad to know that you like the song. I hope the song encourages you to never give up on anything.

  97. Jason Roebuck

    No, I don't believe it is religion that is messed up, but some religious people are misguided in their dealings with people and make mistakes...I think this song says it best, we can't just give up on what Jesus built in us or in our church...What the Lord has made, no man can tear down...Not directly related, but I hope you get the point, God bless you!
