102. Soft as the voice of an angel

  1. Soft as the voice of an angel,

    Breathing a lesson unheard,

    Hope with a gentle persuasion

    Whispers her comforting word.

    Wait till the darkness is over,

    Wait till life's tempest is done,

    Hope for the sunshine tomorrow

    After the darkness is gone.

    Whispering hope, O how welcome thy voice,

    Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.

  2. If in the dusk of twilight,

    Dim be the region afar,

    Will not the deepening darkness

    Brighten the glimmering star?

    Then, when the night is upon us,

    Why should the heart sink away?

    When the dark midnight is over,

    Watch for the breaking of day.

  3. Hope as an anchor so steadfast

    Rends the dark veil for the soul;

    Whither the Master has entered,

    Robbing the grave of its goal.

    Come then, O come. glad fruition,

    Come to my sad, weary heart;

    Come, O Thou blest hope of glory,

    Never, O never depart.
