Hope on, all you who are in despair,
hope on, knowing He will forever care
rest in the promises of your Savior
and God will bless you with His favor.
Hope on, all you who are suffering,
hope on, let His mercy do the buffering
know that this too shall pass and end
and your problems God will fix and mend.
Hope on, you the fainthearted one,
hope on, and trust in His living Son
God’s grace will help and see you through
for there isn’t anything He can’t do.
Hope on, all those who have great sorrow,
hope on, He will bring a brighter tomorrow
find rest in God’s everlasting arms
and He’ll protect you from all that harms.
Hope on, all you who are in unending pain,
hope on, for soon you are going to gain
rest and comfort that only God can give
so hold on, and in His peace you shall live!
King James Version
“Be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen your heart,
all ye that hope in the Lord.”
Deborah Ann Belka
