Hoping is not wishing, it's expecting.
We hope, we watch, we wait, for our savior to return.
The days, the nights, pass on by, we are left to yearn.
Longing, seeking, knowing the day is drawing near.
Our Savior is on His way to take us far from here.
The world will pass away and heaven will be revealed.
Our restless souls will be at peace, eternity is sealed.
Jesus Christ, our living hope, Is coming for His bride.
We will take our rightful place at our Saviors side.
We have this hope of heaven because Jesus is alive.
They tried to crucify Him, but love refused to die.
Death no longer has a sting, the grave was overthrown.
No fear or doubt can shake us now, we hope in Christ alone.

1 Peter 1:3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead
