Hope in Front of Me

Lyrics to “Hope in Front of Me” – by Danny Gokey

 

I’ve been running through rain
That I thought would never end
Trying to make it on faith
In a struggle against the wind
I’ve seen the dark and the broken places
But I know in my soul
No matter how bad it gets
I’ll be alright

There’s hope in front of me
There’s a light, I still see it
There’s a hand still holding me
Even when I don’t believe it
I might be down but I’m not dead
There’s better days still up ahead
Even after all I’ve seen
There’s hope in front of me

There’s a place at the end of the storm
You finally find
Where the hurt and the tears and the pain
All fall behind

You open up your eyes and up ahead
There’s a big sun shining
Right then and there you realize
You’ll be alright

There’s hope in front of me
There’s a light, I still see it
There’s a hand still holding me
Even when I don’t believe it
I might be down but I’m not dead
There’s better days still up ahead
Even after all I’ve seen
There’s hope in front of me

There’s a hope still burning
I can feel it rising through the night
And my world’s still turning
I can feel your love here by my side

You’re my hope
You’re the light, I still see it
Your hands are holding me
Even when I don’t believe it
I’ve got to believe
I still have hope
You are my hope

Lift Up Your Eyes – Danny Gokey

Lift Up Your Eyes 

Lyrics

Light of lights eternal hope has come
By and by to lead us back to love
Come behold a manger for a bed
Where the King of Kings has laid his head
Light of lights eternal hope has come

Hear the angel’s song break the silent night
Lift up your eyes, lift up your eyes
See the saving One born that none may die
Lift up your eyes, lift up your eyes
Glory to God let the praises rise
Lift up your eyes, lift up your eyes
Glory to God let the earth reply
Lift up your eyes

Come and lay your offering at his feet
Where the sons of earth and heaven meet
Let the joy awaken every heart
Born into the night the morning star
Come and lay your offering at his feet

Hear the angel’s song break the silent night
Lift up your eyes, lift up your eyes
See the saving One born that none may die
Lift up your eyes, lift up your eyes
Glory to God let the praises rise
Lift up your eyes, lift up your eyes
Glory to God let the earth reply
Lift up your eyes

And he shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God
And he shall be called Prince of Peace, Lord of Host, the Hope for all

Can you hear the angel’s song break the silent night
Lift up your eyes, lift up your eyes
See the saving One born that none may die
Lift up your eyes, lift up your eyes
Glory to God let the praises rise
Lift up your eyes, lift up your eyes
Glory to God let the earth reply
Lift up your eyes

More Than You Think I Am – Danny Gokey

Lyrics to “More Than You Think I Am” 

Danny Gokey

You always think I’m somewhere on a mountain top
But never think behind bars
You’d be amazed the places that I’d go to be with you
Where you are

So forget what you’ve heard
What you think that you know
There’s a lot about me
That’s never been told

I’m more than you dreamed
More than you understand
Your days and your times
Were destined for our dance
I catch all your tears
Burn your name on my heart
Be still and trust my plan
I’m more than you think I am
More than you think I am

Rumor has it there’s a gavel in my hand
I’m only here to condemn
But let me tell you secrets you would’ve never known
I think of you as my best friend

So much has been said
Even doubted my name
But I’m showing you now
Who I really am

I’m more than you dreamed
More than you understand
Your days and your times
Were destined for our dance
I catch all your tears
Burn your name on my heart
Be still and trust my plan
I’m more than you think I am
More than you think I am

Let me open your eyes to see the heart of me, differently
Come closer than you’ve ever been
Let me in like never before
Bring me every broken part
The wounds and scars of who you are
And hide in me and you will see

I’m more than you dreamed
More than you understand
Your days and your times
Were destined for our dance
I catch all your tears
Burn your name on my heart
Be still and trust my plan
I’m more than you think I am

Look at the Hands

Hope Danny GokeyAbused. Failure. Addict. Victim.

We all have labels. Placed by ourselves or others.

As far as we run, or as fast, the labels remain.

They deride the heart. You’ll never change. You’ll never get beyond this.

They taunt the soul. You’re hopeless. It’s impossible. There is no hope.

But as long as we can grasp that one thing – hope – we can still hold on. No matter how feeble its flickering flame. No matter how far its sparkling starlight. No matter how vague its whispered promise.

“There is hope in front of me,” Danny Gokey sings.

“There’s a light, I still see it
There’s a hand still holding me
Even when I don’t believe it”

Hold on to hope. Never let go. No matter how distant the promise. Let it burn inside your soul.

“You are my hope … Your hands are holding me even when I don’t believe it.”

If you can’t see beyond the mist that fogs your eyes and casts question upon your future, that’s okay. All you have to see is the Hands. Look at the hands holding you. The scars denoting deepest grief. The hope they bear beyond death. The way, the truth, the life.

Hope in Front of Me

 

Hope in Front of Me

Danny Gokey

I’ve been running through rain
That I thought would never end
Trying to make it on faith
In a struggle against the wind
I’ve seen the dark and the broken places
But I know in my soul
No matter how bad it gets
I’ll be alright

There’s hope in front of me
There’s a light, I still see it
There’s a hand still holding me
Even when I don’t believe it
I might be down but I’m not dead
There’s better days still up ahead
Even after all I’ve seen
There’s hope in front of me

There’s a place at the end of the storm
You finally find
Where the hurt and the tears and the pain
All fall behind

You open up your eyes and up ahead
There’s a big sun shining
Right then and there you realize
You’ll be alright

There’s hope in front of me
There’s a light, I still see it
There’s a hand still holding me
Even when I don’t believe it
I might be down but I’m not dead
There’s better days still up ahead
Even after all I’ve seen
There’s hope in front of me

There’s a hope still burning
I can feel it rising trough the night
And my world’s still turning
I can feel your love here by my side

You’re my hope
You’re the light, I still see it
Your hands are holding me
Even when I don’t believe it
I’ve got to believe
I still have hope
You are my hope
