the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 103
You are His living hope

what keeps us going is Jesus
to look back to His suffering
and remember through the fire
He's right beside us walking

what keeps us going is Jesus
to look forward to the new heaven
and know how much more beautiful
it is that now when we feel saddened

what keeps us going is Jesus
even when we don't feel He is there
and we just want to give up
no longer have to care

what keeps us going is Jesus
even when pain seems to kill
and though no one may see it
sorrow is something we all feel

what keeps us going is Jesus
no matter our struggle how small
He has been through the greatest
greater than us all

He is my living hope
even when i feel the despair
and when i don't feel comforted
how do i know He's there

I still struggle within myself
but then i have to ask
who was Jesus's living hope
when He suffered from dawn to dusk

not only His Father who was in heaven
but something He didn't have there
something i rarely consider
how could it even be fair

when i realise answer
i ask how can it be
that Jesus's living hope
was actually me

how could someone like me
be a hope to Him
so great His glory and love
that everything grows dim

but right now in my world
things still sparkle and shine
and i haven't fully grasp
the joy of Jesus being mine

i must keep reminding myself
whatever the world may think
and however saddened i feel
in His hope i can go on living
