Hope,
When faith is gone,
And lingers the dawn,
Hope,
When storms rage,
And wars wage,
Hope,
Cling to the promise,
When yawns the abyss,
Hope.

Hope,
Through tear-blinded eyes,
Through cloud-darkened skies,
Hope,
When trapped in grief,
And wrapped in unbelief,
Hope,
When all comes undone,
Refuse to abandon
Hope.

Hope,
When temptations ensnare,
When enticed to despair,
Hope,
When all else fails,
And doubts assail,
Hope,
In the One who keeps
Each tear you weep,
Hope.

Hope in God, dear soul.
And relinquish all control.
To the God of hope.

Thanks, John. It’s a limited expression of my appreciation for a word that has meant so much to my wife and me.
