Christian lyrics with chords for guitar, banjo, mandolin etc.
(C) Soft as the (F) voice of an (C) angel,
(G7) Breathing a lesson un (C) heard.
(C) Hope with a gentle per (F) suasion,
(C/G) Whispers her (G7) comforting (C) word.
(C) Wait till the (G7) darkness is (C) ov (Am) er,
(G7) Wait till the (D7) tempest is (G) done. (G7)
(C) Hope for the (F/C) sunshine to (C) morrow,
(C/G) After the (G7) shower is (C) gone.
(G) Whispering (C) hope,
O how (G7) welcome thy (C) voice,
(F) Making my (C) heart in its (G7) sorrow re(C) joice.
Hope has an anchor so steadfast,
Rends the dark veil for the soul.
Wither the Master has entered,
Robbing the grave of its goal.
Come then O come glad fruition,
Come to my sad weary soul.
Come Thou O blessed hope of glory,
Never O never depart.
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 midnight is over,
Watch for the breaking of day.
