When you’ve been in the abyss so long
Holding that glimmer of light you cannot see
Overlooking the suffering you can no longer feel
Stretching and reaching out to the unattainable promise

Your hope can only be deferred and breached
And your aching heart is more than broken
But keep your hope…And keep your hope
And don’t give up, Never, NEVER …

The abyss isn’t lower than the highest peak
The darkest cloud is only hiding the Son
And the suffering will only bring everlasting glory
The promise will suddenly and wonderfully spring forth

Your hope will then only be the stronger
And your heart will be more than healed
Your hope will then become a wonderful reality
Your perseverance will have brought a mighty victory
