Great is our hope, dear Christian
A hope which endures beyond time
Hope through the resurrection of Christ
Hope sacred, spiritual and sublime

Yes, our loving Father gives to us
A wondrous birth in living hope
It transcends our understanding
Eternal and all-encompassing in scope

Let us wear this hope as our helmet
A sure and steadfast anchor of the soul
Yes, through the joy and peace of believing
Hope abounds in us to make us whole

So my hearts sings praises to our Savior
For His hope does carry me above trial
Yes, rain and shadows may encompass me
But His hope keeps me joyful all the while

Things external cannot overcome me
No, my eyes are fixed on hope of eternity
For hope that is seen is not hope at all
I instead wait for what I do not see

Christian, then, do not grow discouraged
Do not quench the Spirit living in you
Fix your eyes instead on Godís Promises
Set your heart upon the eternal and true

Then surely hope will well in your soul
Surely it will burst forth as a fountain
It will embrace, uplift and encourage you
Both in deep valley and on towering mountain

So join me, dear Christian, in praising God
May hope keep our eyes fixed on Heaven above
For nothing is more beautiful or more sweet
Than to experience Christ and His eternal love

Rejoice we do in the hope Jesus has given us
It is a hope which endures beyond time
Hope through the resurrection of our sweet Savior
A hope sacred, spiritual and sublime

Romans 15:13 (KJV)
Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.
