Ancient Hope

3 Comments

O love that wilt not let me go,

I rest my weary soul in thee;

I give thee back the life I owe,

That in thine ocean depths its flow

May richer, fuller be.

 

O light that foll’west all my way,

I yield me flick’ring torch to thee;

My heart restores its borrow ray,

That in thine sunshine’s blaze its day

May brighter, fairer be.

 

O Joy that seekest me through pain,

I cannot close my heart to thee;

I trace the rainbow through the rain,

And feel the promise is not vain,

That morn shall tearless be.

 

O Cross that liftest up my head,

I dare not ask to fly from thee;

I lay in dust life’s glory dead,

And from the ground there blossoms red

Life that shall endless be.

 

 

 

I find in these words a profound sadness and yet a deep deep hope. 

Thanks for reading.
