1 Peter 1:3-5
Let us give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Because of his great mercy he gave us new life by raising Jesus Christ from death. This fills us with a living hope, and so we look forward to possessing the rich blessings that God keeps for his people. He keeps them for you in heaven, where they cannot decay or spoil or fade away. They are for you, who through faith are kept safe by God's power for the salvation which is ready to be revealed at the end of time.

In God we have new life
In God we have hope
In God we have hope for the future
In God we have hope evermore
In God we are forever his
God is our living hope
Let us pray
God of hope, we thank you that, in Jesus, we hear your word of grace. That, in Him, you have promised to show us the way. Through the power of the Holy Spirit your hope is planted in our hearts and in our lives. By your grace, make us channels of your hope, that the whole world may sing of your glory.
