My Hope is in the Lord

Stanza 1
My Hope is in the Lord, who gave Himself for me
And paid the price of all my sin at Calvary

Refrain
For me He died; For me He lives,
And everlasting life and light He freely gives.

Stanza 2
No merit of my own His anger to suppress,
My only hope is found in Jesus' righteousness

Refrain
For me He died; For me He lives,
And everlasting life and light He freely gives.

Stanza 3
And now for me He stands Before the Father's throne;
He shows His wounded hands and names me as His own.

Refrain
For me He died; For me He lives,
And everlasting life and light He freely gives.

Stanza 4
His grace has planned it all, 'Tis mine but to believe
And recognize His work of love and Christ receive.

Refrain
For me He died; For me He lives,
And everlasting life and light He freely gives.

Light and life NEW
by: Eugenio

The words of this old hymn came to my mind recently when reading John’s gospel chapter 1 and verse 4: "In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind." Had not heard or even thought of this hymn for many, many years, yet I remembered every verse and the chorus. I love the concise truth it contains and I am filled with gratitude to my Savior today!
