If you know when the words or mu­sic were writ­ten, or where to get a good pho­to of Cross (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


We hope in Thee, O God!
The day wears on to night;
Thick sha­dows lie across our world,
In Thee alone is light.

We hope in Thee, O God!
The fad­ing time is here,
But Thou abid­est strong and true
Though all things dis­ap­pear.

We hope in Thee, O God!
Our joys go one by one,
But lone­ly hearts can rest in Thee,
When all be­side is gone.

We hope in Thee, O God!
Hope fails us oth­er­where;
But since Thou art in all that is,
Peace takes the hand of care.

We hope in Thee, O God!
In whom none hope in vain;
We cling to Thee in love and trust,
And joy suc­ceeds to pain.
