Scott Krippayne Days of Hope Lyrics

I was working on a list of mission trip songs, and although I found a video with this song, I couldn't find the lyrics online anywhere. I was first given a recording of this song on a mission trip while serving at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission.

Days of Hope
by Scott Krippayne

Verse 1:
In the corner there's a man
Who's been brought down by the bottle
On the cot there lies a lady black and blue
There's a man who's served his country
Just staring out the window
Broken and alone

When we serve
Is when we love
When we give
Then there's enough
When we reach out with the hands of Christ
These are the days of hope

Verse 2:
A blanket for the cold
An arm around the shoulder
A shelter in the middle of the storm
A simple cup of soup
A kind word for a stranger
An open heart
An open door



When our gifts join together
We bring a better day
So let us partner
Let us pray

Chorus (x2)
