Hope has come!

Had to share this as I'm listening to one of my favorite Christmas Albums by Sovereign Grace Music. I know it's April, but we listen to Christmas music-year round!  All these songs point to Christ and his finished work on the Cross & Resurrection.  Very encouraging with Good Friday coming tomorrow and Easter Sunday!  Also, one of the songs is describing how Hope has come!  And this is the reason why we gave Hope as Molly's middle name!  It serves to remind us to pray and continue praying that she would run to Christ for her only hope and salvation!
Here's the lryics of that song....really consider the words because truly is the greatest thing that has ever come in history! Christ has come....and our only hope!  May whoever reads this know the true meaning behind this Easter Season...Christ has come!  He is Risen, indeed! Let us praise His Name!

Hope Has Come
by Sovererign Grace Music

"Let us join with the angel voices
Let us join their happy song
All of heaven and earth rejoices
For the Lamb of God has come
He has come to rescue sinners
Come to meet our desperate need
He was born to bring forgiveness
Born for Calvary

Alleluia, Hope has come
Alleluia, Christ has come
We once were slaves in misery
Till You appeared and set us free
Alleluia, Hope has come

Let us lay our gifts before Him
Let us magnify His Name
With our thankful hearts adore Him
For the Lord has come to save
He has come to break sin’s power
He has come to set us free
Hope was born that glorious hour
Christ the mighty King "

Perfect song and a must to constantly remind us of the gift He gave us. Thank you for sharing now as we approach this season when He showed us that perfect picture of His love.

Such awesome words! I've never heard that song. I love that Molly's middle name is Hope!
