Hope of Glory

The first song I've posted here (see the playlist to the side) is titled "Hope of Glory," and I actually wrote it a year and a few months ago. I was walking through a very difficult season of life, and wanted to write something that communicated my honest feelings to the Lord as well as encourage me (and others) to find hope in Him. The chorus is pretty directly taken from Philippians 3:12-14...

"...I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."

Coincidentally, this scripture was the theme for my church's men's ministry for the next year, so I have ended up playing it frequently to close our monthly breakfast meetings.

I can't see more than a foot in front of my face
I can't stand but for the hope of your mercy
I can't run 'cause the devil's gettin' in my way
O for feet fitted with the gospel of your peace

I will press on to take hold
Of that for which You, You won my soul
I'm not looking back behind me
I've got my eyes fixed on my Hope of Glory

I can't feel more than a heartbeat of love
I can't speak much louder than this weak whisper
How many times have I said I've had enough
O for the day I am gonna see my savior

I will press on...
