MY HOPE IS IN THE LORD

VERSE 1:
D  G       D7     G
My hope is in the Lord 
             D7       D
Who gave Him-self for me
    G/B      D
And paid the price 
   G7     Am     G/D D7 G
Of all my sin at Cal-va-ry.

CHORUS:
G   D7    G
For me He died;
    D     G
For me He lives,
    Am          D
And everlasting life
    C        G/D  D7 G
And light He free-ly gives.

VERSE 2:
No merit of my own
His anger to suppress
My only hope is found
In Jesus' righteousness

(REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE 3:
And now for me He stands
Before the Father's throne
He shows His wounded hands
And names me as His own

(REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE 4:
His grace has planned it all
'Tis mine but to believe
And recognize His work of love
And Christ receive

(REPEAT CHORUS)
