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  x2

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

Repeat

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  x2

Jesus Christ my Living Hope
God, You are my living hope
