The reason I can still find hope,
Because I keep one thing in mind;
The toils and troubles I cope,
Since the mercy of God is kind.
 
We are not completely wiped out,
His steadfast love never ceases;
And I will never hold a doubt,
That His grace always increases.
 
His love never comes to an end,
Compassion is not limited;
Having enough strength to defend,
By anyone uninvited.
 
It is new every morning,
Because His faithfulness is great;
So refreshing without warning,
As it is driving out the hate.
 
For the Lord is my lot in life,
That is why I find hope in Him;
Since He handles all of the strife,
So my life is no longer grim.
 
The Lord is good to all of those,
Who are patient enough to wait;
Down from Heaven His love flows,
Allowing it to compensate.
 
It is good when you continue,
To hope and to wait silently;
With perseverance to pursue,
So you can win confidently.
 
It is good for you to endure,
The burdens while they are new;
Able to know the Lord for sure,
Spit them out after He does chew.
 
Let Him sit alone in silence,
Let Him put His mouth in the dust;
And He will bring deliverance,
From the temptation of the lust.
