Hope of the World

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire —may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. (1 Peter 1:3-9; Praise to God for a Living Hope)

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
For the love poured out, For the price of freedom
Let the whole earth sing, Hear the praises rising
We stand in awe of what you’ve done for us
At the cross

[Chorus]
The hope of the world, Lifted on high
Calling us home with arms out wide
To know You forever, To love You forever
You are our everything

[Verse 2]
Our sin erased, We’re forgiven
You made a way, You are our ransom
And we owe this life for all You’ve done for us
At the cross

[Bridge]
All we need is You
