​Hope

This song is by NewSong and appears on the album Give Yourself Away (2009).

Anything you can name, I tried it
Doing my best to fill this hole in my heart
Hope was always out on the horizon
But I could never ever seem to reach quite that far

And I had everything this world could offer
Everything but what I needed most
I called out to Jesus, "Please come help me"
He heard my cry and He gave me hope

I can live for forty days and nights without a single bite to eat
I can live for hours and hours without a drop to drink
And I can hold my breath for minutes at a time
But I can't live a second without hope in my life

Now everyday I wake up smiling
Knowin' that He's got a perfect plan for my life
He's changing everything about me
He lets me see this great big world through His eyes

I can't believe the places that He takes me
I can't believe the joy that I feel
He fills my heart with so much hope for tomorrow
He took my life and made it oh so real

I can live for forty days and nights without a single bite to eat
I can live for hours and hours without a drop to drink
And I can hold my breath for minutes at a time
But I can't live a second without hope in my life
I can't live a second without hope in my life

Hope is my oxygen
The food that feeds my soul
Jesus quenched my deepest thirst
Oh, Jesus made me whole

I can live for forty days and nights without a single bite to eat
I can live for hours and hours without a drop to drink
And I can hold my breath for minutes at a time
But I can't live a second without hope in my life

No, I can't live a second without hope
Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no
Not without hope
