Verse 1
What is our hope in life and death
Christ alone, Christ alone
What is our only confidence
That our souls to him belong
Who holds our days within his hand
What comes apart from his command
And what will keep us to the end
The love of Christ in which we stand

O sing hallelujah
Our hope springs eternal
O sing hallelujah
Now and ever we confess
Christ our hope in life and death

Verse 2
What truth can calm the troubled soul
God is good, God is good
Where is his grace and goodness known
In our great Redeemer’s blood
Who holds our faith when fears arise
Who stands above the stormy trial
Who sends the waves that bring us nigh
Unto the shore, the rock of Christ

Verse 3
Unto the grave what will we sing
Christ he lives, Christ he lives
And what reward will heaven bring
Everlasting life with him
There we will rise to meet the Lord
Then sin and death will be destroyed
And we will feast in endless joy
When Christ is ours forevermore

  Sample Introduction

“What is our hope in life and death? Christ alone.” What a comfort that hope is, that we can trust in the God who shed his blood for us and promises to keep us to the end and raise us to eternal life with him. Let’s remind each other of that hope now and respond in grateful praise.
