After the darkness,
the daylight shines through
After the showers,
the rainbow’s in view
After life’s heartaches,
there comes comfort from above
The peace and the comfort
of God‘s healing love.
Hope looks for the good in people
instead of harping on the worst in them.
Hope opens doors where despair closes them.
Hope discovers what can be done
instead of grumbling about what cannot be done.
Hope draws its power from a deep trust in God
and all the basic goodness of mankind.
Hope “lights a candle” instead of
Hope regards problems, small or large,
Hope cherishes no illusions,
Nor does it yield to cynicism.
You seek me when I lost my way.
