THE HOPE OF THE COMING OF THE LORD




A lamp in the night,
a song in time of sorrow;
A great glad hope which
faith can ever borrow
To gild the passing day,
with the glory of the morrow,
Is the hope of
the coming of the Lord.

Blessèd hope, blessèd hope,
Blessèd hope of
the coming of the Lord;
How the aching heart it cheers,
How it glistens through our tears,
Blessèd hope of
the coming of the Lord.



A star in the sky,
a beacon bright to guide us;
An anchor sure to hold
when storms betide us;
A refuge for the soul,
where in quiet we may hide us,
Is the hope of
the coming of the Lord.

Blessèd hope, blessèd hope,
Blessèd hope of
the coming of the Lord;
How the aching heart it cheers,
How it glistens through our tears,
Blessèd hope of
the coming of the Lord.



A call of command,
like trumpet clearly sounding,
To make us bold
when evil is surrounding;
To stir the sluggish heart
and to keep in good abounding,
Is the hope of t
he coming of the Lord.

Blessèd hope, blessèd hope,
Blessèd hope of
the coming of the Lord;
How the aching heart it cheers,
How it glistens through our tears,
Blessèd hope of
the coming of the Lord.



A word from the One
to all our hearts the dearest,
A parting word to
make Him aye the nearest;
Of all His precious words,
the sweetest, brightest, clearest,
Is the hope of
the coming of the Lord.

Blessèd hope, blessèd hope,
Blessèd hope of
the coming of the Lord;
How the aching heart it cheers,
How it glistens through our tears,
Blessèd hope of
the coming of the Lord.
