Hope of Glory

This is a hymn that I wrote in 1993.



Check this out on Chirbit

Hope of Glory

Christ in us, our Hope of Glory, Jesus is our blessed hope.
He's the hope set before us, Steadfast and secure.
Jesus is our blessed hope, Living in our hearts,
He's the anchor of our souls, Steadfast and secure.

Jesus is the hope within us, Hope fixed on the living God.
He's our hope of salvation and eternal life.
Jesus is our blessed hope, Living in our hearts.
He's the anchor of our souls, Steadfast and secure.

Christ in us, our Hope of Glory, Jesus is our blessed hope.
He'll return in clouds of glory, We shall be like Him.
Jesus is our blessed hope, Living in our hearts.
He's the anchor of our souls, Steadfast and secure.

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Cathy,
I'm so glad you shared your beautiful song! I loved all the words and the powerful meaning-I had to copy this whole stanza to keep in front of me: Jesus is the hope within us, Hope fixed on the living God.
He's our hope of salvation and eternal life.
Jesus is our blessed hope, Living in our hearts.
He's the anchor of our souls, Steadfast and secure.
Thank you for joining The Proverbial Sunrise! I love seeing Hope across several blogs-it has ministered to my soul!
Blessings!
