Our Hope Is In ___?

Our Hope Is In ___?

Why do we hope in armies?
Why do we hope in guns?
In the weapons of this world?

Why do we hope in power?
Why do we hope in our way?
In the systems of this world?

Why do we hope in comfort?
Why do we hope in safety?
In the reflexes of this world?

Why do we hope in churches?
Why do we hope in doctrine?
In the patterns of this world?

When Love, never failing,
When Love, ever waiting,
Is here, within our call.
