How vain would be the life I lived,
If all Iíd said or done,
Brought hopelessness, and strife to man,
Or shame to Godís own Son.
If not one ray of light did shine,
Within a temple darkened,
By sin and hatred of man-kind,
What voice, will I have hearkened?
Thereís blessed Hope in Jesus Christ.
God offered up a plan.
To save a wretched soul like me,
Give life to every man.
You ask what hope have I to see,
Gates of Heaven opened wide?
ĎTis not one thing that I achieved,
Yet I shall be His Bride.
My hope lies deep within Godís Truth,
A promise I hold dear.
His bloodshed was the sacrifice,
In Him, I need not fear.
It was the Cross of Calvary,
Christís life, He freely gave.
He took my sin upon Himself,
Which is my hope today.
