Living Hope

How great the chasm that

lay between us
How high the mountain I

could not climb
In desperation, I turned to heaven
And spoke your name into

the night


Then through the darkness
Your loving kindness
Tore through the shadows of

my soul
The work is finished, the end

is written
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Who could imagine so

great a mercy?
What heart could fathom such boundless grace?
The God of ages stepped

down from glory
To wear my sin and bear

my shame


The cross has spoken,

I am forgiven
The king of kings calls me

His own
Beautiful savior, I'm yours forever
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Hallelujah, praise the one

who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost

its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began

to breathe
Out of the silence, the

roaring lion
Declared the grave has no

claim on me

Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began

to breathe
Out of the silence, the

roaring lion
Declared the grave has no

claim on me
Jesus, yours is the victory

Hallelujah, praise the one who

set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost

its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope
