Poem: Hope

Hope

 

There's a light at the end of the tunnel;

A pot of gold at the rainbows' end;

A silver lining in every cloud that forms;

Good times to be had with a friend.

When things seem desperate and look the darkest,

We should still be of good cheer.

God is always faithful to His children.

We need have nothing to fear.

When Pandora opened her box filled with evils,

Hope remained and did not fly away.

No matter what trials and tribulations await us,

When we have hope ,we can face every new day.

You will be secure because there is hope always.

The Lord delights in those who hope in His unfailing love.

When we feel sad, confused or worried,

We should pray to our Father above.

For He knows the good plans He has for us,

To make us prosper and cause us no harm.

To give us hope and a bright future,

So true believers have no cause for alarm.

Remember that the sun always rises;

It overcomes the darkness of night.

So always have hope for the future.

We're protected by God's loving true light.
