I Have This Hope

We were introduced to a new praise song at church last week.  Yesterday, the song was used again in the service.  Since it has an easy tune to remember, I have been singing it since I woke up this morning.  It addresses every aspect of life and uses scripture to remind us that tho in this world there will be trials and tribulations, we do have hope.

"I Have A Hope"  
Tommy Walker

I have a hope, I have a future
I have a destiny that is yet awaiting me
My life’s not over, a new beginning’s just begun
I have a hope, I have this hope

God has a plan, it’s not to harm me

But it’s to prosper me and to hear me when I call
He intercedes for me, working all things for my good
Though trials may come I have this hope

Chorus

I will yet praise Him, my great Redeemer
I will yet stand up and give Him glory with my life
He takes my darkness and He turns it into light
I will yet praise Him, my Lord my God

My God is for me, He’s not against me

So tell me whom then, tell me whom then shall I fear
He has prepared for me
Great works He’ll help me to complete
I have a hope, I have this hope

Goodness and mercy, they’re gonna follow me

And I’ll forever dwell in the house of my great King
No eye has ever seen all He’s preparing there for me
Though trials may come, I have this hope

Bridge

There’s still hope for me today
‘Cause the God heaven loves me
