Whispering Hope

Recently, I had the privilege of meeting Mr Kim-Khiat Tye who wrote a book entitled Second Dawn in memory of his son Kevin Tye. I have never met Kevin personally but am inspired by his faith after reading this book.

I would like dedicate this hymn in loving memory of Kevin Tye (1976-2006).

Lyrics and Music: Septimus Winner

Soft as the voice of an angel,
Breathing a lesson unheard,
Hope with a gentle persuasion
Whispers her comforting word:
Wait till the darkness is over,
Wait till the tempest is done,
Hope for the sunshine tomorrow,
After the shower is gone.

Refrain:
Whispering hope, oh how welcome thy voice,
Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.

If, in the dusk of the twilight,
Dim be the region afar,
Will not the deepening darkness
Brighten the glimmering star?
Then when the night is upon us,
Why should the heart sink away?
When the dark midnight is over,
Watch for the breaking of day.

Hope, as an anchor so steadfast,
Rends the dark veil for the soul,
Whither the Master has entered,
Robbing the grave of its goal.
Come then, O come, glad fruition,
Come to my sad weary heart;
Come, O Thou blest hope of glory,
Never, O never depart.

    Thanks so much for this service. I resigned a difficult job teaching yesterday and of course I am hearing satan try to make me worry about finances. This was the hymn that uplifted me today and reminded me that the darker the twilight the brighter the star shines. It’s beautiful and these pieces are such a ministry to my soul. Thanks so much for helping me start preparing my heart for devotions and the sabbath tomorrow!
    God Bless You!

    Very nice — I have never heard this before, but I love the lyrics and music especially the refrain –

    Refrain:
    Whispering hope, oh how welcome thy voice,
    Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.

    Thank You!

    This was mother’s favorite song, and I’m wanting to learn to play it on the piano (and sing along, of course). This is the most beautiful piano arrangement I’ve ever heard of it. Do you know who arranged it and where I can get it? Thanks!

    I improvised the piano part based on the 4-part hymn arrangement. I can do a piano arrangement, but it will take time.
