Be In Strong Hope



Harold Macdonald


Be strong in hope the Lord is on his way!.

Trembling knees be firm and straight!

Heads held high, your God await!

Mirages turn to pools upon that glorious day!


Limp arms take up the Spirit’s healing sword!

Ee’n now the Way of Holiness appears;

done the darkness, done the timeless years!

Hope now, the Lord will keep his Word.


You are too filled with anxious things

the mind is lowly crammed

the heart is devil damned

Be still, for Lo the heavenly Spirit sings


And make a place for God, of emptiness

and build within yourself, the Baby’s crèche. .
