If We Are To Have Hope

by Deborah Ann Belka © 2017

If we are to have hope,
in what we can’t see
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t trust more in Thee?

If we are to have patience,
while for Your return we await
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t keep to the straight gate?

If we are to have faith,
that Your Kingdom is coming
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t keep faithfully running.

If we are to have perseverance,
even though You may tarry
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t our own cross carry?

If we are to have hope,
if we are to trust and believe
why is it then Lord . . .
we don’t keep our eyes on Thee?

Romans 8:25

“But if we hope for that we see not,
then do we with patience wait for it.”

King James Version
