Where’s Your Hope?

“Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, just as we hope in You” (Psalm 33:22)

The following song was written in 1945 (at the end of World War II) by Norman J. Clayton. His words echo mine, and I trust yours as well:

My Hope Is in the Lord (Norman J. Clayton) - TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN HYMN -  YouTube

“My hope is in the Lord who gave Himself for me,

And paid the price of all my sin at Calvary.

“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.

“FOR ME HE DIED, FOR ME HE LIVES;

AND EVERLASTING LIFE AND LIGHT HE FREELY GIVES.”

“For whatever things were written before (in the Bible, God’s Word) were written for our learning; that we, through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope(Romans 15:4).
