Hope Because of Yesterday


O Thou of little faith,

God hath not failed thee yet!

When all looks dark and gloomy,

Thou dost so soon forget –


Forget that He has led thee,

And gently cleared thy way;

On clouds has poured His sunshine,

And turned thy night to day.


And if he's helped thee hitherto,

He will not fail thee now;

How it must wound His loving heart

To see thy anxious brow!


Oh! doubt not any longer,

To Him commit thy way,

Whom in the past thou trusted,

And is just the same today.
