Hope, you anchor of my soul,
Forever in my heart abide,
And manifest your splendid glow,
In silver waves upon a tide,
Forever peep into my heart,
Like grassy patches in the snow,
Like moonbeams through a cloudy sky,
Where misty winds do swiftly blow,
Where mortal man must live and die,
Where anger, malice, envy reign,
Where tender, loving hearts are torn,
Do gently come and heal the pain,
Hope, forever comforting,
Do not abandon me, alas!
And breath with me my mournful sighs,
Till alll my days shall come to pass.
