Tenth Avenue North - "I Have This Hope" (Official Music Video)

Through trials and tragedies, Tenth Avenue North reminds us we can walk securely - because we have a Hope that won't go away!  Here is the official music video of the group's single, "I Have This Hope."

Passionately tender, the ballad “I Have This Hope” was born of a time of personal uncertainty in Owen’s life when his sister-in-law was suddenly diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, and he walked into a writing session with a heavy heart. The 32-year-old mother of three began chemo treatments in early February of 2016 just as Tenth Avenue North started writing for their album, Followers. Rooted in Isaiah 43, the song was penned in her honor.

“For the most part, the things I see in Scripture are really not this promise of this plan working out a certain way, but it’s the promise of His presence with us through whatever happens,” Donehey observes. “God doesn’t say, ‘You will be spared of tragedy.’ He says, ‘Tragedy won’t crush you; it won’t overwhelm you; it won’t consume you. I am with you.’”

Two-and-a-half months later, when the band entered the studio to record the song, Owen’s brother and sister-in-law stopped by following a doctor’s appointment at Vanderbilt University. Miraculously, while his sister-in-law was sitting on the couch in the studio, she received a call from the doctor telling her that her cancer was in remission. It was a divine intervention and a literal in-studio reminder to the band that God is in the details.

I Have This Hope Lyrics
As I walk this great unknown
Questions come and questions go
Was there purpose for the pain
Did I cry these tears in vain
I don’t wanna live in fear
I wanna trust that You are near
Trust Your grace can be seen
In both triumph and tragedy

I have this hope
In the depth of my soul
In the flood or the fire
You’re with me and You won’t let go

But sometimes my faith feels thin
Like the night will never end
Will You catch every tear
Or will You just leave me here

So whatever happens, I will not be afraid
‘Cause You are closer than this breath that I take
You calm the storm when I hear You call my name
I still believe that one day I’ll see Your face

In the flood or the fire
You are with me and You won’t let go
In the flood or the fire
You are with me and You won’t let go
