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

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.

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 hope in front of me
There’s a light, I still see it
There’s a hand still holding me

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
