How could we not adore You
Jesus our rescuer
Jesus our rescuer

We're safe in the arms of Your embrace     
Breathing in Your freedom
Lifting a song of highest praise
And breathing out Your anthem    
O Your love, o Your love
We're singing o Your love, o Your love

We couldn't escape,
The sin and the shame
That kept us bound
We couldn't  break through
We couldn't reach You
So You reached down

Jesus, You're the only hope
Jesus, hope for all the world
Jesus, You're the only hope
Jesus, hope for all the world
