Hope of the Nations
Jesus, hope of the nations
Jesus, comfort for all who mourn
You are the source
Of heaven’s hope on earth

Jesus, light in the darkness
Jesus, truth in each circumstance
You are the source
Of heaven’s light on earth

In history You took your place
In Galilee You showed God’s grace
You are the hope, living in us
You are the rock in whom we trust
You are the light
Shining for all the world to see

You rose from the dead
Conquering fear
Our Prince of peace
Drawing us near
Jesus our hope
Living for all who will receive
Lord, we believe

Jesus, life to our dying
Jesus, word for our doubting hearts
You are the source
Of heaven’s peace for earth
Jesus, star to our searching
Jesus, king for our following
You are the source
Of heaven’s song on earth

In history You lived and died
You broke death’s chains
You rose to life
You are the hope, living in us
You are the rock in whom we trust
You are the light
Shining for all the world to see

You rose from the dead
Conquering fear
Our Prince of peace
Drawing us near
Jesus our hope
Living for all who will receive
Lord, we believe
Lord, we believe
Lord, we believe

In history You left the tomb
You broke the bread
Dispelled the gloom
In history You called us ‘friends’
You gave Your Spirit
Your grace You send

You are the hope
Living in us
You are the rock
In whom we trust
You are the light
shining for all the world to see

You rose from the dead
Conquering fear
Our Prince of peace
Drawing us near
Jesus our hope
Living for all who will receive
Lord, we believe
Lord, we believe
Lord, we believe
Lord, we believe.
