Hope in Winter
Within the darkest night of every soul
When heavy blankets swallow up the light;
The waves of sorrow deep with sadness roll;
Though clouds abound, no “angel’s ray” in sight.
True Hope is light to those lost in such dark;
And Hope is all that guides them through the storm.
Its fire warms the deepest Winter stark
And melts his icy finger’s chilling harm.
A rainbow in the midst of heavy rain;
A smile when there is naught to smile about;
The saddest dirge so full of countless pain
Gives way to Hope, the future not in doubt.
Hope loves its lover, grasps its grasper to
Work hope for all believers working true.
Lights in Darkness
Too Much Hurry
I step out in the brisk of Winter’s day
With mind so full of schedules yet to keep
And harried to be off and on my way,
Forget the peace and quiet of my sleep
Near halfway in my quest of reaching home
With eyes set forward ne’er to look behind
At steps my feet have trudged most oft alone
The mem’ries of good friends lost to my mind
But not so you, dear friends, with every thought
I thank our Father for your tender care
In sharing all you have whether you aught
With ones you nary see but in your prayer
May God with richest blessings bless you two
As blessing me with being close to you.
