“My Hope” in God’s grace

same loveFor many years I have been a church music junkie (still am). I spend lots of time seeking out great new songs to inspire the local church. Paul Baloche is one writer who usually delivers great songs about great bible truths and the great love of our Saviour.

This one is a fairly recently release, the song “My Hope”. We have taught it at our church; actually it became a sort of theme song to a sermon series on Deuteronomy. The song speaks of the guidance and the faithfulness of God, how through every test His GRACE is with us. Amen to that. Our God is not fickle or changing. That’s why we can hold on to Him. I’m really looking forward to teaching about 600 women this new song at a Women’s conference (called GROW) in Brisbane early next month. I hope you enjoy the song too.

“My Hope” from the album The Same Love, Paul Baloche 2012
Nothing will change if all the plans I make go wrong
Your love stays the same
Your light will guide me through it all
I’m hanging on, I’m leaning in to You

Nothing can reach the end of all Your faithfulness
Your grace is with me through every shadow every test
I’m hanging on, I’m leaning in to You

I don’t know where You’ll take me
But I know You’re always good

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Your great love, Your righteousness
I will not walk another way
I trust Your heart, I trust Your Name
I’m holding on, I’m holding on to You

You are my Rock when storms are raging all around
You shelter me God
I’m safe with You on solid ground
I’m hanging on, I’m leaning in to You

I don’t know where You’ll take me
But I know You’re always good

My hope is built on nothing less than Your great love, Your righteousness,
I will not walk another way, I trust Your heart, I trust Your Name
I’m holding on, I’m holding on to You

  1. Thanks for this Ros. As a ‘church music junkie’ I wonder if you know any contemporary songs that mention the blood of Christ in relation to his Grace and our Salvation? I just noticed the similarity of ‘My Hope’ to Edward Mote’s verse, “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness”, written around 1Corinthians 3:11 and thought it was an interesting change of theme.

    • Through the Precious Blood, a Sovereign Grace song…..chorus says “Grace upon grace flows down….through the precious blood of Christ”. Is that what you were thinking of? And yes clever that they partially borrowed that phrase from an older hymn. It gives some element of familiarity to elderly generation.

      • Yes, thanks again. Just went and listened to Mark Altrogge’s song that you mentioned and liked it a lot. I can see why the elderly are comfortable with the more familiar lyrics though.
