Christian Hope Songs

    It can be hard to find light when you are in a dark place filled with despair and hopelessness. Don’t give up. The light of Jesus shines through in so many places especially through the gift of music. Let these Christian hope songs fill your heart and lift your spirit. 

    Holy Water by ‘We the Kingdom’ (a Christian Hope Song)

    This beautiful song is a confession of being at the point of sheer desperation for God and finding hope and fulfillment in His forgiveness of our sins so that we can start life anew in His mercy, love, and grace. 

    God, I’m on my knees again
    God, I’m begging please again
    I need you
    Oh, I need you

    Walking down these desert roads
    Water for my thirsty soul
    I need you
    Oh, I need you

    Your forgiveness
    Is like sweet, sweet honey on my lips
    Like the sound of a symphony to my ears
    Like Holy water on my skin


    My Hope Is In You by Third Day

    It can be hard to put your trust fully and completely in the Lord when you don’t know what His plan is for your life especially if you find yourself devoid of hope. This encouraging short song helps remind us that we can put our whole hope and trust in Jesus because He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

    To You, O Lord, I lift my soul
    In You, O God, I place my trust
    Do not let me be put to shame
    Nor let my enemies triumph over me

    My hope is You
    Show me Your ways
    Guide me in truth
    In all my days
    My hope is You


    Graves Into Gardens by Elevation Worship

    Why would we put our faith in mankind who is fallible and disappoints us so easily? This song illustrates how God can turn even the most hopeless situation into a beacon of light. The hope of a new day and a better world radiate from these lyrics. 

    I searched the world
    But it couldn’t fill me
    Man’s empty praise
    And treasures that fade
    Are never enough

    Then You came along
    And put me back together
    And every desire
    Is now satisfied
    Here in Your love

    You turn mourning to dancing
    You give beauty for ashes
    You turn shame into glory
    You’re the only one who can

    You turn graves into garden
    You turn bones into armies
    You turn seas into highways
    You’re the only one who can

    I Will Rise by Chris Tomlin

    Death seems so final, but Jesus has shown us that He is victorious even over death. His resurrection gives us hope that the sorrows of this world will pass and we will enter into His kingdom where despair and hopelessness do not exist.

    Jesus has overcome
    And the grave is overwhelmed
    The victory is won
    He is risen from the dead

    And I will rise when He calls my name
    No more sorrow, no more pain
    I will rise on eagles’ wings
    Before my God fall on my knees
    And rise
    I will rise
