Hope Will Arise

“I will never forget this awful time … Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning” (Lamentations 3:20-23).

Just as the sun rises every dawn,
Breaking the darkness as light comes on,
Although my days feel as black as night,
Hope will arise in the Spirit’s light.

Just as new growth rises every spring,
Breaking bare soil with fresh life to bring,
Although my work seems but futile strife,
Hope will arise as God gives it life.

Just as our Lord rose that Easter day,
Breaking death’s power with bright Heaven’s display,
Although my soul feels but dead despair,
Hope will arise through His loving care.

When It Seems All Over

“Hungry and thirsty, they nearly died. ‘LORD, help!’ they cried in their trouble, and he rescued them from their distress. He led them straight to safety, to a city where they could live” (Psalm 107:5-7).

When life’s load is heavy,
More than we can haul,
God will bear it for us,
And we will not fall.
Though demands seem crushing,
More than we can fill,
When it seems all over,
God is working still.

When deep tears and heartache
Drill into the soul,
We still have God’s comfort:
He is in control.
When we reach our limits–
Nothing more to do–
When it seems all over,
God will bring us through.

When our earthly journey
Is complete at last,
God will still be with us:
He still holds us fast.
When we leave this lifetime,
We won’t go alone:
When it seems all over,
God will take us home.
