Hymn/Song Information

WE HAVE A HOPE




Have we any hope within us of a life beyond the grave,
In the sweet and vernal lands?
Do we know that when our earthly house by death shall be dissolved,
We’ve a house not made with hands?

We have a hope within our souls,
Brighter than the perfect day:
God has given us His Spirit,
And we want the world to hear it,
All the doubts are passed away.


Blessed hope we have within us is an anchor to the soul,
It is both steadfast and sure;
It is founded on the promises of Father’s written word,
And ’twill evermore endure.

We have a hope within our souls,
Brighter than the perfect day:
God has given us His Spirit,
And we want the world to hear it,
All the doubts are passed away.


Hope has brought us through the dangers and temptations of the past,
And we fear not those to come;
By her blessings we’ll go forward, while our mortal life shall last,
Then we’ll joyously go home.

We have a hope within our souls,
Brighter than the perfect day:
God has given us His Spirit,
And we want the world to hear it,
All the doubts are passed away.


Since we’ve walked the strait and narrow way our path has ever shone
Brighter, brighter, day by day;
Hope within our hearts assures us it is better farther on,
It is brighter all the way.

We have a hope within our souls,
Brighter than the perfect day:
God has given us His Spirit,
And we want the world to hear it,
All the doubts are passed away.


Life will end in joyful singing, “I have fought a faithful fight,”
Then we’ll lay our armour down;
And our spirits freed from earthly ties shall take their happy flight
To possess a starry crown.

We have a hope within our souls,
Brighter than the perfect day:
God has given us His Spirit,
And we want the world to hear it,
All the doubts are passed away.


---Alternative verses---


Have we any hope within us of a life beyond the grave,
In the sweet and vernal lands?
Do we know if this, our tabernacle, were to be dissolved,
We’ve a house not made with hands?

We have a hope within our souls,
Brighter than the perfect day:
God has given us His Spirit,
And we want the world to hear it,
All the doubts are passed away.


Life will end in joyful singing, “I have fought a faithful fight,”
Then we’ll lay our armour down;
And our soul will break the cable here, and take its happy flight,
To possess a starry crown.

We have a hope within our souls,
Brighter than the perfect day:
God has given us His Spirit,
And we want the world to hear it,
All the doubts are passed away.
