There is a Hope

Verse 1:

             D         Em              G

There is a hope that burns within my heart

                Em          D/F#  G       A

That gives me strength for every passing day

              D    Em               G  A   Bm

A glimpse of glory now revealed in meagre part

      D/F#       E     A

Yet drives all doubt away

    Bm       A           G      D/F#

I stand in Christ, with sins forgiven

     Em       F#       Bm  A/C#  D

And Christ in me, the hope of heaven

    D/F#     G             F#      Bm

My highest calling and my deepest joy

    G        A       D

To make His will my home

Verse 2:

There is a hope that lifts my weary head

A consolation strong against despair

That when the world has plunged me in its deepest pit

I find the Saviour there

Through present sufferings, future’s fear

He whispers ‘courage’ in my ear

For I am safe in everlasting arms

And they will lead me home

Verse 3:

There is a hope that stands the test of time

That lifts my eyes beyond the beckoning grave

To see the matchless beauty of a day divine

When I behold His face

When sufferings cease and sorrows die

And every longing satisfied

Then joy unspeakable will flood my soul

For I am truly home
