Impact - "Hope Song"


CATEGORIES: News, Home Page, New Releases, English
"Hope Song" is a recent release from Impact, the youth ministry of New Life Church in Montreal. This single was originally sung in French one month before the Paris Terrorist Attack in November 2015 and soon became an anthem for many grieving Christians and churches throughout France. Sebastien Corn of Impact shares, "I just wrote this song as a means to go through the personal mourning I was facing at that time, but it seems that my raw emotions and my enduring confidence in God resonated with people everywhere in the French speaking world."

Sebastien Corn of Impact shares his Song Story below.






I wrote “Hope Song” during one the most hopeless moment in my life. My cousin had just died from a motorcycle accident. He was more than a cousin, he was like a brother to me. As I was flying back to France to attend the funeral, I didn’t know how to express so much pain. But the Lord lead me through that journey and gave me Psalm 121 - I lift my eyes to the mountains, where does my help come from. My help comes from the Lord, Maker of Heaven and Earth. So I wrote “Hope Song” based on this promise that even in the darkest situation, God is still our hope. We released that song one month before the Paris Terrorist Attack in November 2015 and soon it became an anthem for a lot of grieving Christians and Churches throughout France. I just wrote this song as a means to go through the personal mourning I was facing at that time, but it seems that my raw emotions and my enduring confidence in God resonated with people everywhere in the French speaking world. Today, this song has more than 5 million views on Youtube (which is quite unusual for the French Speaking Christian World). Seems that the more personal you are, the more universal you get.
