Verse 1:
   C          C/E     F     C
My hope rests firm on Jesus Christ,
   Em    Am   G
He is my only plea:
       F       G            C     C/E   F
though all the world should point and   scorn,
     Dm    G         Am
His ransom leaves me free,
     Dm    G         C   F    D9sus4   Gsus4   G
His ransom leaves me free
Verse 2:
   C       C/E      F    C
My hope sustains me as I strive
    Em       Am        G
and strain towards the goal;
       F       G       C    C/E    F
though I still stumble in - to     sin,
    Dm         G      Am
His death paid for it all,
    Dm         G      C    F    D9sus4   Gsus4   G
His death paid for it all.
Verse 3:
   C       C/E      F      C
My hope provides me with a spur
   Em        Am     G
to serve Him all my days:
    F       G        C      C/E   F
to hate the sin that clings on    still
    Dm       G      Am
and seek His face always,
    Dm       G      C   F    D9sus4   Gsus4   G
and seek His face always.
Verse 4:
   C       C/E    F       C
My hope is to be  with my Lord,
   Em      Am   G
to know as I am known:
   F         G      C   C/E    F
to serve Him gladly all my     days
   Dm       G        Am
in praise before His throne,
   Dm       G        C   F   D9sus4   Gsus4   G   C
in praise before His throne.

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.

My hope sustains me as I strive
And strain towards the goal.
Though still I stumble into sin,
His death paid for it all,
His death paid for it all.

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.

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.
