Representative Text

1 Thou art my Hope when the days are dreary,
Thou art my light when the shadows fall;
Jesus my Saviour, when worn and weary,
Thou art my Strength, mine all in all.

Thou art my Hope, dearest Saviour, ever,
Close to Thy side all the way I cling,
Leaning on Thee Thou wilt fail me never,
Jesus my Saviour, Lord, and King.

2 Thou art my Hope when the storm clouds darken,
Helper and Friend wheresoe’er I stray,
Ever to thee shall my Spirit hearken,
Thou art my Guide along life’s way. [Refrain]

3 Thou art my Hope thro’ the night of sorrow,
Joy of my soul when all others die,
And in Thy strength and Thy kingly beauty,
I shall behold Thee by and by. [Refrain]
