Today my husband and I have been listening to a song by Stuart Townend. its a hymn that’s been precious to us since sins have been confessed. This hymn affected us profoundly as we sat in the car. we listened to it over and over.
For the Christian, there is hope, sins are forgiven and we are happiest and most fulfilled when we make his will our home.
These are the words:
There is a hope that burns within my heart,
That gives me strength for every passing day;
A glimpse of glory now revealed in meagre part,
Yet drives all doubt away:
I stand in Christ, with sins forgiven;
And Christ in me, the hope of heaven!
My highest calling and my deepest joy,
To make His will my home.
There is a hope that lifts my weary head,
A consolation strong against despair,
That when the world has plunged me in its deepest pit,
I find the Saviour there!
Through present sufferings, future’s fear,
He whispers ‘courage’ in my ear.
For I am safe in everlasting arms,
And they will lead me home.
There is a hope that stands the test of time,
That lifts my eyes beyond the beckoning grave,
To see the matchless beauty of a day divine
When I behold His face!
When sufferings cease and sorrows die,
And every longing satisfied.
Then joy unspeakable will flood my soul,
For I am truly home
We have an amazing saviour who is with us in the deepest darkest pit. I thank him today for convicting, forgiving, accepting, loving and restoring. We deserve none of it, yet he has given us all of it, and joy unspeakable floods our souls. What an amazing saviour we have!
