Hope. Ps. 71. 5; Lam. 3. 24-26; Rom. 5. 2; 15. 13
R. Burnham C.M.
Our Jesus is the God of hope;
He works it by his power;
It holds the weak believer up,
In the distressing hour.
The darkest cloud hope pierces through,
And waits upon the Lord,
Expects to prove that all is true
Throughout the sacred word.
True hope looks out for blessing great;
And, though they’re long delayed,
Yet hope’s determined still to wait,
Until they are conveyed.
Hope long will wait, and wait again,
And ne’er can give it up,
Till the blest Lamb, who once was slain,
Appears the God of hope.
