Star Of Hope

When misfortunes come our way, we are to press on and have hope. Lillian Curtis's poem expresses these thoughts that trials and troubles find us all but we must look forward with the hope of brighter days to come. We all have dark days when we feel all hope is gone, but if we look for a glimmer of hope it will be there. If we lose hope we give up, but having hope helps us to cope and teaches us that better days are coming.

Star Of Hope
Poet: Lillian E Curtis


We look o'er the dark clouds that hover around,
To greet a ray of light visible afar,
And tho' trials and troubles are dense and profound,
We would look for Hope's radiant star.

Dark days we know must come unto all,
But we ne'er should give up to despair,
While we can look o'er the fierce waterfall,
To a star that's so bright and so fair.

The tempest of life is a fierce, howling blast,
Yet sweet, hidden joys it may bar,
The sweeping tide fair gems may overcast,
Bro't to light by Hope's radiant star.

Let's not frown on what misfortunes have severed,
Not their fair inherent beauties mar,
By omitting the value there is to be gathered,
By looking at Hope's wondrous star.

You may also enjoy this poem about hope being the brightest star, written by B. A. G. Fuller. Having hope in all situations can help us deal with adversity and challenges that we all have in life. And when you look to the sky and see the millions of stars putting your hope in the creator of the universe, God, will encourage you and give you peace. As Rick Warren once said, "What gives me the most hope every day is God’s grace; knowing that his grace is going to give me the strength for whatever I face, knowing that nothing is a surprise to God."  

Have Hope
Poet: B. A. G. Fuller

Have Hope! it is the brightest star
That lights life's pathway down:
A richer, purer gem than decks
An Easter monarch's crown.
The Midas that may turn to joy
The grief-fount of the soul;
That paints the prize and bids thee press
With fervor to the goal.

Have Hope! as the tossed mariner
Upon the wild sea driven
With rapture hails the polar star -
His guiding light to haven -
So Hope shall gladden thee, and guide
Along life's stormy road.
And as a sacred beacon stand
To point thee to thy God.
