There yet is hope in God!

(edited from Octavius Winslow’s “Hoping in the Lord”)

How sweet and assuring is the trust of a
child in a parent’s love, care, and protection.

Such a Father is ours!

We may trust in His forgiveness,
to cancel our greatest sins.

We may trust in His wisdom,
to guide our most intricate perplexity.

We may trust in His power,
to raise up from the lowest depth.

We may trust in His love,
to soothe our profoundest grief.

We may trust in His resources,
to supply our every need.

Let your condition be ever so extreme;
human friendship disappointing you, earthly
supplies failing you, human sympathy refused
you, and dark despair enthroned grimly and
coldly upon your heart; there yet is hope in God!

Never was He so near as at this moment,
when human help is far; never so loving,
and compassionate, as now, when human
love has failed!

Such a Father is ours!
