My hope rests firm on Jesus Christ

My hope rests firm on Jesus Christ,
he is my only plea:
though all the world should point and scorn,
his ransom leaves me free,
his ransom leaves me free.

2.   My hope sustains me as I strive
and strain towards the goal;
though I still stumble into sin,
his death paid for it all,
his death paid for it all.

3.   My hope provides me with a spur
to help me run this race.
I know my tears will turn to joy
the day I see his face,
the day I see his face.

4.   My hope is to be with my Lord,
to know as I am known:
to serve him gladly all my days
in praise before his throne,
in praise before his throne.
