1 Hope on, hope on, O troubled heart;
If doubts and fears o’ertake thee,
Remember this—The Lord hath said,
He never will forsake thee;
Then murmur not, still bear thy lot,
Nor yield to care or sorrow;
Be sure the clouds that frown today,
Will break in smiles tomorrow.
2 Hope on, hope on, though dark and deep
The shadows gather o’er thee;
Be not dismayed; thy Savior holds
The lamp of life before thee;
And if He will that thou today
Shouldst tread the vale of sorrow,
Be not afraid, but trust and wait;
The sun will shine tomorrow.
3 Hope on, hope on, go bravely forth
Through trial and temptation,
Directed by the word of truth,
So full of consolation;
There is a calm for every storm,
A joy for every sorrow,
A night from which the soul shall wake
To hail an endless morrow.
