I'm the man with all I've ever wanted
All the toys and playing games
I am the one who pours your coffee, corner booth each Saturday
I am your daughter's favorite teacher
I am the leader of the band
I sit behind you in the bleachers
I am every man

I'm the coach of every winning team and still a loser in my mind
I am the soldier in the airport facing giants one more time
I am the woman shamed and haunted by the cry of unborn life
I'm every broken man, nervous child, lonely wife

CHORUS:
Is there hope for every man
A solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land
Is there hope for every man
Is there love that never dies
Is there peace in troubled times
Someone help me understand
Is there hope for every man

Seems there's just so many roads to travel
It's hard to tell where they will lead
My life is scarred and my dreams unraveled
Now I'm scared to take the leap
If I could find someone to follow
Who knows my pain and feels the weight
The uncertainty of my tomorrow
The guilt and pain of yesterday

CHORUS

BRIDGE: (x2)
There is hope for every man
A solid place where we can stand
In this dry and weary land
There is hope for every man
There is Love that never dies
There is peace in troubled times
Will we help them understand
Jesus is hope for every man

    We are singing this in our musical for church in May and I'm so exciting. Friday, we listened to it and watched a video someone made for it and I was in tears at the end. Jesus truly loves us to endure all the pain he did...it's beyond comprehension as to how amazing his love is. He will forever remain in my heart like he always has been:)

    There is hope for every man
    A solid place where we can stand
    In this dry and weary land
    There is hope for every man
    There is Love that never dies
    There is peace in troubled times
    Will we help them understand
    Jesus is hope for every man!

    So amazing!

    It makes me cry every time!!
