Original Key: C


Verse 1:
      F/A  G/B  C         Dm7       C/E   Fsus2  F
There is   a    hope that burns within my heart,
     Dm    A7/C♯  Dm           C/E   F       Gsus4  G
That gives me     strength for every passing day;
  F/A     G/B  C     Dm7   C/E       F  G   Am7
A glimpse of   glory now revealed in meagre part,
    C/E        D7sus4  D7  Gsus4  G
Yet drives all doubt      away: 
  Am       Em/G         F       C/E
I stand in Christ, with sins forgiven; 
    Dm7        E/G♯   Am   G/B  C
And Christ in me, the hope of   heaven! 
G7/D  C/E     F              C/E  E/G♯  Am
My    highest calling and my deepest    joy, 
F6  C/G      G7sus4   G   C     Dm7  C/E  G7sus4
To  make His will      my home.
Verse 2:
      F/A   G/B  C         Dm7      C/E   Fsus2  F
There is    a    hope that lifts my weary head,
  Dm    A7/C♯  Dm     C/E     F         Gsus4  G
A con - so  -  lation strong against despair,
     F/A  G/B  C         Dm7        C/E    F  G    Am7
That when the  world has plunged me in its deepest pit,
  C/E      D7sus4   D7    Gsus4  G
I find the Sa  -    viour there!
        Am      Em/G        F        C/E
Through present sufferings, future's fear,
   Dm7       E/G♯     Am   G/B  C
He whispers 'courage' in   my   ear.
G7/D  C/E   F           C/E    E/G♯   Am
For   I am  safe in everlast - ing    arms,
F6  C/G     G7sus4   G    C    Fmaj9  F6  Am  Fmaj9  F6  Am
And they will lead me home
Fmaj9  F6  D7sus4  D7  Fmmaj7/A♭  G7sus4  G  C
Verse 3:
      F/A  G/B  C         Dm7        C/E     Fsus2  F
There is   a    hope that stands the test of time,
     Dm    A7/C♯  Dm     C/E      F         Gsus4  G
That lifts my     eyes beyond the beckoning grave,
   F/A  G/B  C         Dm7    C/E  F   G  Am7
To see  the  matchless beauty of a day divine
     C/E  D7sus4  D7    Gsus4  G
When I behold       His face!
     Am         Em/G      F       C/E
When sufferings cease and sorrows die,
    Dm7   E/G♯    Am    G/B    C
And every longing sa  - tis  - fied.
G7/D  C/E    F             C/E   E/G♯  Am
Then  joy unspeakable will flood my    soul,
F6  C/G  G7sus4   G      C
For I am tru  -   -  ly  home.

THERE IS A HOPE that burns within my heart,
That gives me strength for every passing day;
A glimpse of glory now revealed in meager part,
Yet drives all doubt away:
I stand in Christ, with sins forgiven;
And Christ in me, the hope of heaven!
My highest calling and my deepest joy,
To make His will my home.

There is a hope that lifts my weary head,
A consolation strong against despair,
That when the world has plunged me in its deepest pit,
I find the Savior there!
Through present sufferings, future's fear,
He whispers 'courage' in my ear.
For I am safe in everlasting arms,
And they will lead me home.

There is a hope that stands the test of time,
That lifts my eyes beyond the beckoning grave,
To see the matchless beauty of a day divine
When I behold His face!
When sufferings cease and sorrows die,
And every longing satisfied.
Then joy unspeakable will flood my soul,
For I am truly home.
