My Hope

My Hope

faint fringes sunset

My God is good and He is wise.

When pain cuts deep and all hope dies,

This world’s aches bid me hide my eyes;

But God is good and He is wise.

My God is wise and holds me near.

When my mind quakes with awful fear,

When agony brings me to tears,

My God is wise and He is near.

My God is near and guides my way

Through thorny nights and stormy days.

Bless Him—He gives and takes away;

My God is near and guides my way.

My God guides me with His good hand.

I fall in grief in this dark land,

But by His grace I know I’ll stand

And walk—led by my good God’s hand.

faint fringes mothLed by His hand I’ll see His face—

How wise His way; how rich His grace!

All sorrows gone, all tears erased;

All fades before that glorious face.
