WHISPERING HOPE by Jim Reeves ( James Travis Reeves-August 20, 1923 – July 31, 1964)
If in the dusk of the twilight, Dim be the region afar. Will not the deepening darkness, Brighten the shimmering star? Then when the night is upon us, Why should the heart sink away? When the dark night is over, Watch for the breaking of day.News of the illness of a dear friend and classmate's husband brought this song to mind as well as these passages of Scripture.
May they bring comfort to her and her husband and to those who's hope has been diminished . Just remember--
When the dark night is over, Watch for the breaking of day.
Be of good courage,And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the LORD.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,And in His word I do hope.
But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
