Yesterday in our morning worship, we sang the song “My Hope is in the Lord.” I was especially blessed by the words of the third verse, and still have it in my mind this morning.
(1) My hope is in the Lord
who gave Himself for me
And paid the price of all my sin at Calvary.
(2) No merit of my own
His anger to suppress
My only hope is found in Jesus’ righteousness.
(3) And now for me He stands
before the Father’s throne;
He shows His wounded hands and names me as his own.
(4) 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!
