Abounding Joy and Hope

Abounding joy and hope

Come from the God of Hope

Who will not disappoint

The Redeemed of the Lord.

The Redeemed can go on

Press on and on and on,

From glory to glory

Breaking every barrier.

By the Spirit’s power,

They’re able to tower

Through storms, mountains, fires

Through darkness and winters.

With faces like a flint

Their eyes will always glint

Never covered with shame,

But will remain radiant.

They shall enter the Land

 In line with His command

Occupy till He comes;

Fly His flag everyday.

Abounding joy and hope

Come from the God of Hope!

12 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Rom15:13

18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” 19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. Rom4:18-21

1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; 4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. 6 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.Rom5:1-6
