I Saw Hope




I saw hope today
Ruby frieze on an arm of gray
Boldly flaunted ‘gainst azure sky
True as the blue in my true love’s eye
Oh, I saw hope today

I saw hope today
Quietly rising in a misty fray
As the wind dies down on a silent night
And the frozen pond breaths a sigh of white
I saw hope today

I saw hope today
As the sun slipped behind a wall of gray
I paused to watch her glory sink
Beyond earth’s broad and mystic brink
Oh, I saw hope today

I saw hope today
As time and seasons trickle away
Spring and tomorrow wait in the fringe
Whereon our joy and sorrow hinge
Oh, I saw hope today
