Heartbeat Of Hope - Lyrics by Chapman Steven Curtis


Lyrics
The taste of my tears
The day I watched you drift away
And I remember
Before you disappeared
I started hoping for the day
When I'd see your face
And look in your eyes
Feel your embrace
And we'd never say goodbye
I can hear it in the baby's cry
In a mother's lullaby
Everytime the morning sky
Begins to glow
I can feel it pounding deep inside
It's keeping faith alive
And i will not let it die
The heartbeat of hope
I am learning
I'm learning as I go
Just how thankful hope can be
The ache of yearning
Can never let you go
It has become a part of me
But pure are the longings
Holding on and holding out
I'll keep holding to the one thing
I know I can not live without
I can hear it in the baby's cry
In a mother's lullaby
Everytime the morning sky
Begins to glow
I can feel it pounding deep inside
It's keeping faith alive
And i will not let it die
Because it's more
Than something I believe in
It's a song that makes me dance
When my feet refuse to move
It's the wind that bumps the water
That I can not get through
I can hear it in the baby's cry
In a mother's lullaby
Everytime the morning sky
Begins to glow
I can feel it pounding deep inside
It's keeping faith alive
And I will not let it die
The heartbeat of hope
I will not let it die
The heartbeat of hope
I will not let it die
It's keeping faith alive
It's the heartbeat of hope
Keep it alive
The heartbeat of hope
I will not let it die
No, I will not let it die
Keep it alive
Keep alive
The heartbeat of hope
