“The Fading and Renewing”
Light fades with the setting of the sun,
Hope fades while the battle’s not won,
Much love fades on the liar’s face,
Time passes with a flying pace.
“Strengthen the tired heart, dear Lord,
The battle has gone on for so long.
Renew the spirit, give a new song,
The soul won’t wither with the world.”
The fading of all that is prone to fade
Surely will come in its appointed time
But hope in God your heart won’t evade
And God can forgive our every crime.
It’s true, false remedies won’t alleviate the pain,
False cures won’t avail those suffering,
Hope won’t grow from a liar’s offering
And all the enemy’s efforts are ultimately in vain.
