The Door Of Hope
When your soul is deeply anguished,
And your way, hedged about with thorns,
Though you know the Lord has smitten –
He will bind up what He has torn.
Dwelling in the Valley of Trouble,
Convicted, you hear God’s Spirit cry,
“The Door of Hope is now open –
Despair not – the Lord your God is nigh.”
He will heal all of your backslidings
When you seek Him with all your heart;
Though you’ve wandered in your wilderness,
His mercies will grant you a new start.
Turn from the Valley of Weeping;
Forsake your wanderings in sin –
The Door of Hope has been opened,
Jesus is calling – return to Him.
Though your spirit is so heavy,
And your heart is scarred by sin,
In repentance, hope is promised -
Rejoice with singing and enter in.

And I will give her her vineyards from thence,
and the valley of Achor [trouble] for a door of hope:
and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth,
and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.
Come, and let us return unto the LORD:
for He hath torn, and He will heal us;
He hath smitten, and He will bind us up.
Who passing through the valley of Baca [weeping]
make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
When Thou saidst, Seek ye My face;
my heart said unto Thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
