JESUS, THE HOPE OF THE WORLD…October 20, 2015

“But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.”  Psalm 39:7
I give you another poem from one of my mom’s old books…enjoy! -anita

**************************

Lying in darkness, deep in despair,

Battered and broken, so crushed ‘neath its care;

Bowed down with sorrow, sin’s banners unfurled,

Jesus alone is the hope of the world.

Wasted in battle, strong is the foe,

Bitter the conflict, deep, deep is the woe,

Cowered, defeated, the wicked darts hurled,

Jesus alone is the hope of the world.

Jesus on Calvary died in our stead,

Bruising forever the enemy’s head;

Mercy abundant and unfailing grace.

JESUS ALONE IS THE HOPE OF THE RACE!
