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.
