Hope

Lord, hear my prayer and preserve me,
Where is Your presence in this pain?
For I’m nothing apart from You,
You are my Hope in Sorrow’s grave.

You are my Hope, my only Hope,
You are my Hope, my only Hope,
My Portion for this day,
Shelter from sun and rain,
Joy through any pain,
My Hope beyond the grave.

Jesus, You are The Path of Hope,
You will never abandon me,
And all the problems in this life,
Will be lost in eternity.

When I lie down in the darkness,
Joy and pleasure will be complete,
When I see Your frightful beauty,
And find Hope at Your mercy seat.

You are my Hope, my only Hope,
You are my Hope, my only Hope,
You are my Hope, my only Hope,
You’re my only Hope.

Behind the lines

Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”

As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones, in whom is all my delight. The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply; their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out or take their names on my lips.

The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.

I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption.

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16 ESV)
