Hope Returns

February 27, 2020—

Today’s song by Matthew West reminds us to hold on and trust in God when we struggle to find faith: “Hope Returns.”

When your world is crashing

When your knees hit the ground

When your heart is asking,

“What do I do now?”

Just when you think it can’t get worse

Hold on, that’s when hope returns

As we continue in the season of Lent, let’s remember to call on Jesus to keep us strong during these forty days, to bring us closer to knowing Him and His will.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

So this is how it feels when standing strong
Turns into barely even holding on
The plans you had are shattered on the floor
And your fear tells your faith
There's no use in praying those prayers anymore

When your world is crashing
When your knees hit the ground
When your heart is asking,
"What do I do now?"
Just when you think it can't get worse
Hold on, that's when hope returns

Like a new sun breaking
Through the darkest night
Like a whisper saying,
"It'll be alright"
I know you're tired, I know it hurts
But hold on, that's when hope returns
That's when hope returns

I know it's hard to see the other side
Through all the "Where are You's", and "Don't know why's"
And I know it looks like hope is in the grave
But He's still on the throne
So be still and know
That He's still rolling stones away

So when your world is crashing
When your knees hit the ground
When your heart is asking,
"What do I do now?"
Just when you think it can't get worse
Hold on, that's when hope returns

Like a new sun breaking
Through the darkest night
Like a whisper saying,
"It'll be alright"
I know you're tired, I know it hurts
But hold on, that's when hope returns

Hold on, 'cause hope returns

When your world is crashing
When your knees hit the ground
When your heart is asking,
"What do I do now?"
Just when you think it can't get worse
Hold on, that's when hope returns

Like a new sun breaking
Through the darkest night
Like a whisper saying,
"It's gonna be alright,
I know you're tired, I know it hurts"
But hold on, that's when hope returns
That's when hope returns
Hope returns
