My hope is in the Lord
Who gave Himself for me,
And paid the price of all my sin at Calvary.
For me He died,
For me He lives,
And everlasting life and light He freely gives.
No merit of my own
His anger to suppress.
My only hope is found in Jesus‘ righteousness.
And now for me He stands
Before the Father‘s throne.
He shows His wounded hands and names me as His own.
His grace has planned it all,
‘Tis mine but to believe,
And recognize His work of love and Christ receive.
