1 "Hope is the anchor of the soul"
When stormy billows o'er us roll,
And when dismay our hearts would fill,
Hope softly whispers, "Peace be still"
Hope drives the darkest clouds away,
Turns midnight darkness into day,
And where are naught but tears and sighs,
Makes songs of gratitude to rise.

2 Hoep spans the gulf that lies between
This and the country yet unseen,
And leads our trembling footsteps o'er
Where sin and sorrow are no more.
Then from our eyes it lifts the veil,
Which all the joys of heav'n conceal,
And bids us look within and see
The home prepared for you and me.

3 And when this tenement of dust
In which I live, resigns its trust,
And angels bear me hence away
To realms of everlasting day
And when God's right hand, I see
The One who bore the cross for me,
And hope shall end in joyful strain,
I'll sing forever "Jesus reigns."
