When we give all to God we’re filled with hope,
Believing that He’ll give us what we need
To live abundantly and not just cope,
To live for Him alone in thought and deed.
And when we live for God, the Holy Ghost
Directs our every step along the way.
Then through the march of life, from post to post,
Our hope may then abound until that day
When we approach that final mortal breath,
Such peace and joy will fill our hopeful soul.
Anticipation swells when facing death,
For there the life beyond is real and whole.
The hope you need to make it through the night
Is soon replaced with love when day shines bright.
Now the God of hope fill you
with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Romans 15:13 KJV
