Hope Rests Secure
Christ the Lord has called us to be holy and pure.
He gives us the direction and strength to stand sure.
Therefore, let us prepare ourselves for life of action,
We’re to be active, spreading the Love of God‘s Son.
With a clear and sober mind focus on God’s grace,
He will be returning to take us to a better place.
We no longer have to conform to our old way,
Christ came so we would know of a better way.
Christ the Son of God called us, and He is Holy.
So we can conduct as children of God pure and holy.
The ransom has been paid, not with silver or gold,
But with Christ’s own precious blood, forever bold.
We through Him believe, and know He was raised,
It is in God our faith dwells, may He be praised.
His mercy forgave our dark sins, making us pure,
And it is in Him that our faith and hope rests secure.
