While our gathering location remains closed due to the pandemic, Hope Community is producing a weekly online experience to compliment our Sunday gathering. Listen in, sing along, pray with us, even send in your questions or comments.

The Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes doesn't teach about wisdom—not really. Instead it thoughtfully speculates on wisdom, challenging readers to think more deeply and humbly.

What Love, My God

What love, my God would bring You down to earth?
What king would take a low and lonely birth?
Yet to the dark and broken place You came
To sleep beneath the stars that You had made

What love my God would send the way of life
To walk the road, rejected and despised
That You might know the weakness I possess
And be my rock of strength and righteousness

O, Your love my God like a flood
As heaven opened up, pouring out on us
O, praise the King who came to the world
In His love like a mighty flood

What love, my God could hold You to the tree
To bear that overwhelming debt for me
The Son of heaven leaves the Father's side
The Healer bleeds, the Life was made to die

O, Your love my God like a flood
As heaven opened up, pouring out on us
O, praise the King who came to the world
In His love like a mighty flood

What love, my God so gracious and extreme
Was strong enough to come and fight for me
To go through hell and down into the grave
And raise me up to see You face to face

O, Your love my God like a flood
As heaven opened up, pouring out on us
O, praise the King who came to the world
In His love like a mighty flood
In His love like a mighty flood

Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever
Amen

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This cornerstone, this soled round
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depth of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my all in all
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
The gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross when Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious light
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on my
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand
Here in the power of Christ I stand
