Christ In Us, Our Hope of Glory

Lyrics and Music by Jay-arr Felisilda Librando
Interpreted by Julie Anne San Jose and Nomer Limatog Jr

We felt your word burning within us
Your word unlocked
The hardness of our hearts
And opened our eyes
That we may see you
Hidden in the broken bread.

Lord, you laid down your life
As bread and wine we see
Gave strength to our hearts
And made us shine with glee
When we eat the bread
And drink the cup of wine
We believe that Christ in us
Is our hope of glory.

You brought a ray of light
And you rekindled our hope
And led our hearts
To yearn for your love
For in you is our hope of glory.

Lord, you laid down your life
As bread and wine we see
Gave strength to our hearts
And made us shine with glee
When we eat the bread
And drink the cup of wine
We believe that Christ in us
Is our hope of glory.

Through your own flesh
Now made living
And by the Spirit
Made life-giving
You offered life to us.

And as your sweat became
Like drops of blood
Falling down upon the ground
You shed your blood for us
Amen.

Lord, you laid down your life
As bread and wine we see
Gave strength to our hearts
And made us shine with glee
When we eat the bread
And drink the cup of wine
We believe that Christ in us
Is our hope of glory.

We believe that Christ in us
Is our hope of glory.
