HOPE

Hope is a recurring theme, it seems, for many this year. We’ve been really encouraged by a number of devotions and words on the subject of hope. This hymn, although written in 1931, speaks into our hearts just as loudly today…..why not take a moment to read it and pray through it?e4a286deb544e0452a55e1734bb1f6f7

Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy,

Whose trust, ever childlike, no cares could destroy,
Be there at our waking, and give us, we pray,
Your bliss in our hearts, Lord,
At the break of the day.

Lord of all eagerness, Lord of all faith,

Whose strong hands were skilled at the plane and the lathe,
Be there at our labours and give us, we pray,
Your strength in our hearts, Lord,
At the noon of the day.

Lord of all kindliness, Lord of all grace,

Your hands swift to welcome, Your arms to embrace.
Be there at our homing, and give us, we pray,
Your love in our hearts, Lord,
At the eve of the day.

Lord of all gentleness, Lord of all calm,

Whose voice is contentment, whose presence is balm,
Be there at our sleeping, and give us, we pray,
Your peace in our hearts, Lord,
At the end of the day.
