HOPE – A Poem

Will you let hope slip away,

Will you hearken while it’s day?

Oh what darkness, oh what sorrow,

To live lost all your tomorrows.


This is all I want to say,

Will you let hope slip away,

And leave this world in your lost state,

Forever barred from heaven’s gate?


Don’t you hear the Saviour calling,

Won’t you heed His Word of warning?

Will you let hope just slip away,

And be unsaved your dying day?


Passing through the door of death,

Having taken your last breath,

Will you be ready for the day,

Will you let hope just slip away?

2 Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Hebrews 2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

Colossians 1:5 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;
