Hope Is Marching On

Long can be the night of our struggle
Deep can be the wounds of this life
But hope lives on in spite of our trials
And these soon shall pass
Yes, these soon shall pass

You take the world off my shoulders
The weight of it all off my shoulders
You breathe Your hope, You watch over
And You take the world, all the weight of this world

There are times of tears and of trouble
We wander through the darkness of night
But hope will shine inside of this battle
And this too shall pass
Yes, this too shall pass
But until it does

And Your love, it keeps on lifting me
And Your hope is marching on
And Your mercy surely carries me
And Your hope is marching on
