The Hope Within Me

by Jason Kirk Bartley

I have hope, 
for I am found.
I have victory,
joy is all around.
Jesus flows.
He’s changed my life,
like no one knows.
I’ve taken the straight and narrow.
He watches over me like He does the sparrow.
I’m in safe hands, they never quake.
He stills the tremors,
when I begin to shake.
He conquered all for goodness’ sake.
Here I stand,
a mighty Christian,
a completed man.
with holy hands, reaching for the sky.
No need to fear, or even ask, “Why?”
Christ is where I’m found,
this love I feel is so profound.
He had me on His mind from the foundation,
one life, one God, a holy nation.
In His presence,
I do believe,
His power and might I do receive.
Did you know He died for me?
His completeness wrought through suffering.
I’m an heir to the king’s throne,
I’m not lonely,
I’m not alone.
He’s everywhere the eye can see.
The epitome of love.
He came for me.
