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
