God’s Song of Hope

 

"Is the midnight closing round you?

Are the shadows dark and long?

Ask Him to come close beside you,

And He'll give you a new, sweet song.

He'll give it and sing it with you;

And when weakness lets it down,

He'll take up the broken cadence,

And blend it with His own.

And many a rapturous minstrel

Among those songs of light,

Will say of His sweetest music

"I learned it in the night."

And many a rolling anthem,

That fills the Father's home,

Sobbed out its first rehearsal,

In the shadow of a darkened room."

Psalm 42:8 "Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life."
