Verse 1
In Him I have believed, on this my hope now rests 

That Jesus Christ is risen from the dead
The all-surpassing joy of knowing Christ, my Lord 

The former things, I count them all as loss
Called out of darkness into Your goodness
We are Your children, chosen in Christ
Now in Your family, heirs of the promise
To Your purpose on the earth I give my life


Verse 2
A people born of God, united by Your call
One faith, one Lord, one Father of us all
Now joined with bonds of love and planted in Your house 

We worship You with hearts and lives poured out
Let us go on in the power of Your Spirit
Taking Your gospel to all the world!
Declaring Your wisdom, our great commission:
That Jesus Christ has come to save the lost!


Verse 3
Whatever trials may come, in faith, Lord, help us stand 

For righteousness and justice in our land
What fear can hold us now? We run toward the prize 

Our lives already crucified with Christ!
Through every nation Your kingdom advances
Who can extinguish this spreading flame?
Through tribulations, we’ll stand on Your promise:
‘I will build My Church and hell will not prevail!’


Verse 4
And on that final day, the citizens of heaven 

Called out to be the new Jerusalem
In multitudes will bow before the throne of God 

One nation called from every tribe and tongue 

Great celebration! The glorious union:
The Lion of Judah and the pure, spotless Bride! 

All of creation waits for this moment:
All Your promises fulfilled in Jesus Christ!
