Christ Is My Hope is the third EP by American alternative rock group The Innocence Mission.

A collection of newly recorded spiritual music ("O Lord of Light", "O Sacred Head Surrounded", "Beautiful Saviour"), folk songs ("500 Miles"), ballads ("Fare Thee Well") and original songs ("No Storms Come", "Christ Is My Hope", "Morning Star"), the record was released independently by the group's own label, LAMP, with all proceeds being donated to hunger relief charities.

The lyrics to the track "No Storms Come" are adapted from the poem "Heaven Haven (A Nun Takes the Veil)", written by 19th-century English poet Gerard Manley Hopkins. It would later be re-released on their 2003 album Befriended.
