Living Hope

VERSE 1
How great the chasm that lay between us, how high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation, I turned to heaven and spoke Your name into the night
Then through the darkness, your loving-kindness tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished, the end is written, Jesus Christ, my living hope

VERSE 2
Who could imagine so great a mercy, what heart could fathom such boundless grace
The God of ages stepped down from glory to wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken, I am forgiven, the King of kings calls me His own
Beautiful Savior, I’m Yours forever, Jesus Christ, my living hope

CHORUS
Hallelujah!  Praise the One who set me free! Hallelujah!  Death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain, there’s salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

VERSE 3
Then came the morning that sealed the promise, your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the Roaring Lion declared the grave has no claim on me
Then came the morning that sealed the promise, your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the Roaring Lion declared the grave has no claim on me
Jesus, Yours is the victory!
