Sunrise of Hope


Hope rises in our hearts
like the sunrise over a
snow-capped mountain peak,
reaching up to the skies.

Hope gives us gladness
from dawn to dusk,
flooding our souls with
heaven's sweetest music.

Hope assures us of a
rousing victory over defeat,
of a glorious certainty
that the best is yet to come.

Hope opens our eyes
to the beauty of life
and the tranquil walk of faith.

Hope makes us aware
of a God of compassion and kindness,
who touches our wintry despair
with His amazing love.

In the midst of life's stormy seas,
we will have perfect peace,
if Christ is our Captain,
our hope and our guide.

Ring the joybells of life
as we fly on the wings of hope,
with Christ as our Pilot.
Enjoy the glorious sunrise
of hope over the mountains of life.

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
