Hope
Today I pray and hope
Today I sow the seed
Today the soil looks barren
And quickly sprouts the weed
We spend our time with care
upon the blighted ground
and wait.

Tomorrow brings the harvest
It finds the fields green
Tomorrow all the weeds are gone
And hope can now be seen.
The soil no longer fruitless
The battle has been won.
I reap the fruit of earnest prayer
And hear HIM say "Well done"
