C.M.


1
HOPE of our hearts, O Lord, art Thou,
The glorious Star of day;
Thou wilt shine forth, and chase the night
With all our tears away.
2
No resting place we seek on earth,
No lovliness we see;
Our eye is on the crown above,
Prepared for us by Thee.
3
But, blessèd Lord, however bright
The crown of joy above,
What is it to the brighter hope
Of dwelling in Thy love?
4
There near Thy heart upon the throne,
Thy cherished bride shall see
What grace was in the suff'ring Lamb,
Who died to make us free.

E. Denny
