Hope of the Ages

Verse 1
The people in darkness have seen a great light,
A light that is shining through the shadow of death.
And hearts that were hardened now break with the morning.
While all of creation is holding its breath…

Chorus
Hallelujah! Sing to the Lord!
Come and worship, come and adore!
For our God has come in flesh and blood
To set His people free.
Hope of the ages, Jesus is born.

Verse 2
Consider and marvel at the mystery of God,
And the manner He shows us our King and His Son,
Enthroned in a manger, asleep on the straw,
Helpless and holy and hope for us all.

Chorus
Hallelujah! Sing to the Lord!
Come and worship, come and adore!
For our God has come in flesh and blood
To set His people free.
Hope of the ages, Jesus is born.

Peace on the earth, good will to men on whom His favor rests.
Glory to God, glory to God, God in the highest!
Peace on the earth, good will to men on whom His favor rests.
Glory to God, glory to God, God in the highest!
Peace on the earth, good will to men on whom His favor rests.
Glory to God, glory to God, God in the highest!
Peace on the earth, good will to men on whom His favor rests.

Chorus
Hallelujah! Sing to the Lord!
Come and worship, come and adore!
For our God has come in flesh and blood
To set His people free.
Hope of the ages, Jesus is born.
Hope of the ages, Jesus is born.
