Hope of the Ages


Verse 1
The prophets had glimpsed and the angels had watched with awe
The unfolding plans of our faithful, redeeming God
What they longed for we have seen
What was promised we believe

Hope of the Ages, Isaiah’s great light
Abraham’s offspring
Blessing of Jacob, Judah’s might
Hope of the Ages, David’s true Son
Desire of nations, promised salvation
God with us

Verse 2
The vision once clouded has now to our hearts appeared
Once shrouded in myst’ry, redemption has been made clear
Our Messiah now has come
Word made Flesh, the saving One

All hail the One now revealed to the world
In Bethlehem born to a young virgin girl
Lamb without blemish yet cruelly betrayed
Who cried, “It is finished!” and rose from the grave
The Father’s great gift and the proof of His love
Hope of the Ages, our God here with us
