Hope is heaven’s promise, 
That the sun is shining bright,
Even though dark shadows loom,
To swallow up the light.

Hope declares to everyone,
That it has never failed,
Espouse your faith to hope and you,
Will never be dismayed.

Hope when rooted deep in faith,
Will spring eternal fruit,
It lives up to its sacred pledge,
That it is wed in truth.

The door to hope can be unlocked,
The key is to concede,
To the grace of God that will,
Ensure you succeed.

If you place your hope in Him,
His promise He will keep,
Peace and joy will flood your soul,
The well of God runs deep.

  1. Very nice words Myra however, very difficult to live it out!!! When one sees doors shut on all sides then what about hope? Hopefully this poem will speak to those who have to look at God alone for all their hope!!!
    ‘Go ahead’


  2. Nice one Myra. Since faith can flinch, I root my hope deep in God. Love, Killy.
