Words and music by Grant Van Leuven

Song Sketch Intro:
Struggling with this world, comforted by the hope of Heaven.  Guess it's a recurring theme for the Christian troubadour.

CHORUS:
Nobody said it was gonna be easy
Nobody said it was gonna be free
Haven’t you heard, life isn’t fair?
But we’ve got HOPE IN ETERNITY

Life is hard
Sometimes I feel like checkin’ out
From the world
Forgettin’ what it’s all about

Things seem bad
When I keep lookin’ down at my feet
Kickin’ round
At the fears I can’t seem to beat
But then I think, that…

CHORUS

Will things change?
It seems like there will never be
Better times
Apart from giving up on me
Unless I
Get a grip on my life and learn
I have time to reach for the things I yearn for, ‘cause…

CHORUS

Carry on
Are the words ringing in my ear
Life is hard, but there’s nothing I need to fear
Jesus reigns! Are the words I need to repeat
While I wait for the promise I know’ He’ll keep
And so I sing…

CHORUS

HOPE IN ETERNITY
HOPE IN ETERNITY
You know He died to set us [The elect, don't sweat it] free
And we’ve got HOPE IN ETERNITY
