This is a hymn that I wrote in 1993.

Colossians 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

Hope of Glory

Christ in us, our Hope of Glory, Jesus is our blessed hope.
He's the hope set before us, Steadfast and secure.
Jesus is our blessed hope, Living in our hearts,
He's the anchor of our souls, Steadfast and secure.

Jesus is the hope within us, Hope fixed on the living God.
He's our hope of salvation and eternal life.
Jesus is our blessed hope, Living in our hearts.
He's the anchor of our souls, Steadfast and secure.

Christ in us, our Hope of Glory, Jesus is our blessed hope.
He'll return in clouds of glory, We shall be like Him.
Jesus is our blessed hope, Living in our hearts.
He's the anchor of our souls, Steadfast and secure.

The lyrics are beautiful, Cathy. Inspired. I'll have to come back to listen to the melody, as it's merely 5am and the house and all its inhabitants ('cept for me) are asleep. :o)

Thank you for posting this...looking forward to hearing the song.

Blessings my dear musical friend Cathy...What a blessed hope of Glory! He is the anchor of my soul.
I love the words & the melody of this hymn! You are so gifted!

Thank you for your prayers & visits while I was under Hurricane Jimena's warning alert...continue to pray for those who were not spared as I was from the power & destruction. But Our God is still in control & more powerful than anything. I am safe & secure in His steadfast hope as your song says!
Clinging to that hope & thanking Him for friends like you who pray for me! May God return the blessing to you as you have blessed others with your talent & gift of music!
Praise God! Our Hope of Glory!

Thank you so much everybody for your kind words. I wrote the hymn based on the scripture verse:

Colossians 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

I also heard Charles Stanley preaching on hope. :)
