Verse: 1
My hope is in the Lord
Who gave Himself for me,
And paid the price of all my sin at Calvary.

Chorus:
For me He died,
For me He lives,
And everlasting life and light He freely gives.

Verse 2:
No merit of my own
His anger to suppress:
My only hope is found in Jesus’ righteousness.

Chorus:
For me He died,
For me He lives,
And everlasting life and light He freely gives.

Verse 3:
And now for me He stands
Before the Father’s throne:
He shows His wounded hands and names me as His own.

Chorus:
For me He died,
For me He lives,
And everlasting life and light He freely gives.

Verse 4:
His grace has planned it all,
’Tis mine but to believe,
And recognize His work of love, and Christ receive.

Chorus:
For me He died,
For me He lives,
And everlasting life and light He freely gives.
