Tag line (=Refrain):

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



  1. 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.

o    Refrain:
Whispering hope, oh, how welcome thy voice,
Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.

  1. 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.
  2. 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, oh, come, glad fruition,
    Come to my sad weary heart;
    Come, O Thou blest hope of glory,
    Never, oh, never depart.

Hope - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



In religion

Hope is a key concept in most major world religions, often signifying the "hoper" believes an individual or a collective group will reach a concept of heaven. Depending on the religion, hope can be seen as a prerequisite for and/or byproduct of spiritual attainment, among other things.



Main article: Hope (virtue)

Hope is one of the three theological virtues of the Christian religion, [32] alongside faith and love.[33] “Hope” in the Holy Bible means “a strong and confident expectation” of future reward.[this quote needs a citation] In modern terms, hope is akin to trust and a confident expectation".[34] Paul the Apostle argued that hope was a source of salvation for Christians: "For in hope we have been saved...if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it".[34]

According to the Holman Bible Dictionary, hope is a "[t]rustful expectation...the anticipation of a favorable outcome under God's guidance.[35] In the Pilgrim's Progress, it was Hopeful who comforted Christian in Doubting Castle; while conversely at the entrance to Dante's Hell were the words, "Lay down all hope, you that go in by me".[36]



In historic literature of Hinduism, hope is referred to with Pratidhi (Sanskrit: प्रतिधी), [37] or Apêksh (Sanskrit: अपेक्ष).[38][39] It is discussed with the concepts of desire and wish. In Vedic philosophy, karma was linked to ritual sacrifices (yajna), hope and success linked to correct performance of these rituals.[40][41] In Vishnu Smriti, the image of hope, morals and work is represented as the virtuous man who rides in a chariot directed by his hopeful mind to his desired wishes, drawn by his five senses, who keeps the chariot on the path of the virtuous, and thus is not distracted by the wrongs such as wrath, greed, and other vices.[42]

In the centuries that followed, the concept of karma changed from sacramental rituals to actual human action that builds and serves society and human existence[40][41] - a philosophy epitomized in the Bhagavad Gita. Hope, in the structure of beliefs and motivations, is a long-term karmic concept. In Hindu belief, actions have consequences, and while one’s effort and work may or may not bear near term fruits, it will serve the good, that the journey of one’s diligent efforts (karma) and how one pursues the journey,[43] sooner or later leads to bliss and moksha.[40][44][45]
