At the End of Hope

At the end of hope
when at the foot of the cross
knees were bowed and
dreams were shattered
grace flowed.

At the end of hope
when at the empty tomb
hearts were bereft and
understanding was muddled
grace arose.

At the end of hope
when death claims the innocent
while evil kills and destroys
and sows seeds of living anger
grace abides.

At the end of hope
when fools reign in defiance
while ignorance abandons
all that is holy and right
grace protects.

At the end of hope
when there is no reason to live
as life multiplies in pain and despair
and the future forecasts even more
grace beckons.

At the end of hope
when HIS praises and songs we sing
as weak and broken we humbly fall
and cling to HIS promises and strength
grace endures.

Grace makes a way
to live one more moment and for
one more day though it may be through
the darkest of nights simply because
with grace, there is no end of hope.
