The joy of hope

*****
I delight in these weaknesses
Not that I am deranged
But because of my certain hope
That when all is done, I will rise
Rise to see no frailty in my Savior's reign
*****
Never again will I see disease
Not once will tears drop down my cheeks
Never will I  hear of bad news
For in that holy mountain only good news exist
News of exceeding joy unknown to this cruel world
*****
So I cling to this hope in tears and anguish
Holding tight on the promise of resurrection
For my hope in Christ is sure
And in him is unfading assurance
That I may live in hope amidst danger
*****

So I smile when I should cry

I delight as this body fades away

For only a little longer

And I will see him come from the clouds

And this is my delight; the joy of hope

*****
