Hope: Eternal and All-Encompassing in Scope

Hope Eternal

(Send as an Inspirational Christian Lighthouse e-card!) 


Great is our hope, dear Christian

A hope which endures beyond time

Hope through the resurrection of Christ

Hope sacred, spiritual and sublime


Yes, our loving Father gives to us

A wondrous birth in living hope

It transcends our understanding

Eternal and all-encompassing in scope


Let us wear this hope as our helmet

A sure and steadfast anchor of the soul

Yes, through the joy and peace of believing

Hope abounds in us to make us whole


So my heart sings praises to our Savior

For His hope does carry me above trial

Yes, rain and shadows may encompass me

But His hope keeps me joyful all the while


Things external cannot overcome me

No, my eyes are fixed on hope of eternity

For hope that is seen is not hope at all

I instead wait for what I do not see


Christian, then, do not grow discouraged

Do not quench the Spirit living in you

Fix your eyes instead on God’s Promises

Set your heart upon the eternal and true


Then surely hope will well in your soul

Surely it will burst forth as a fountain

It will embrace, uplift and encourage you

Both in deep valley and on towering mountain


So join me, dear Christian, in praising God

May hope keep our eyes fixed on Heaven above

For nothing is more beautiful or more sweet

Than to experience Christ and His eternal love


Rejoice we do in the hope Jesus has given us

It is a hope which endures beyond time

Hope through the resurrection of our sweet Savior

A hope sacred, spiritual and sublime

    His hope does carry me…and surely it will burst forth! Wonderful that what carries us is also what we have to give!! Wonderful, thank you!

      Amen! Tom, such a beautiful insight you share: indeed what carries us is also what we give! Our Father is one of glorious paradoxes. Great is the God we serve! May He continue to bless you and your ministry, dear brother in Christ!
