On Hope


Song: Whispering Hope ~

Hope is that Light to which we’re drawn
A thirst in every heart
It is assurances of dawn
When night is deep and dark
To Hope we lift our empty cup
Not in a faithless duty
But knowing Someone fills it up
With heaven’s unseen beauty

Hope breaks through ramparts of despair
And drives its doubt asunder
Hope is the Whisper in the air
That stirs the heart with wonder
Hope does not worry, does not quit
Hope draws us from our slumber
And lifts us from the darkened pit
Hope does not encumber

Hope is that Light to which we’re drawn
An unseen Hand to hold
Hope is the Voice that spurs us on
In spite of what we’re told
Hope is the beckoning of Life
Though tears may dim the eye
Hope makes bearable this strife
For without Hope…we die

Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
   whose hope is in the LORD their God. Psalms 146:5
