Whispering Hope lyrics:

Soft as the voice of an angel
Breathing a lesson unheard
Hope with a gentle persuasion
Whispers her comforting word
Wait till the darkness is over
Wait till the tempest is done
Hope for the sunshine tomorrow
After the shower is gone.

Whispering hope
Oh, how welcome thy voice
Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.

If, in the dusk of the twilight
Dim be the region afar
Will not the deepening darkness
Brighten the glimmering star?
Then when the night is upon us
Why should the heart sink away?
When the dark midnight is over
Watch for the breaking of day.

Whispering hope
Oh, how welcome thy voice
Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.

Hope, as an anchor so steadfast
Rends the dark veil for the soul
Whither the Master has entered
Robbing the grave of its goal
Come then, O come, glad fruition
Come to my sad weary heart
Come, O Thou blest hope of glory
Never, O never depart.

Whispering hope
Oh, how welcome thy voice
Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.
