257. I Have a Hope

1 I have a hope, serene and sure,
That anchors past the veil;
In all the storms it holds secure,
Nor will it ever fail.

Refrain:
My hope is born of God’s own word,
And nourished by His grace;
His promise true my soul hath heard,
And hope beholds His face.

2 I have a hope that looks away
From present woes and tears
To heaven’s bright eternal day,
Till sorrow disappears. [Refrain]

3 I have a hope that doth not fear
The silent grave to view,
Nay, doth not shrink though death appear,
For I shall live anew. [Refrain]
