    I am weary with the pain of Jacob's wrestling
    In the darkness with the Fear, in the darkness with the Fear
    But he met the morning wounded with a blessing
    So in the night my hope lives on

    When Elisha woke surrounded by the forces
    Of the enemies of God, the enemies of God
    He saw the hills aflame with angels on their horses
    So in the night my hope lives on

    I see the slave that toils beneath the yoke unyielding
    And I can hear the captive groan, hear the captive groan
    For some hand to stay the whip his foe is wielding
    Still in the night my hope lives on

    I see the armies of the enemy approaching
    And the people driven, trembling, to the shore
    But a doorway through the waters now is opening
    So in the night my hope lives on

    Like the son who thought he'd gone beyond forgiveness,
    Too ashamed to lift his head--but if he could lift his head
    He would see his father running from a distance
    In the night my hope lives on

    I can see the crowd of men retreating
    As he stands between the woman and their stones
    And if mercy in his holy heart is beating
    Then in the night my hope lives on

    I remember how they scorned the son of Mary
    He was gentle as a lamb, gentle as a lamb
    He was beaten, he was crucified, and buried
    And in the night, my hope was gone

    But the rulers of earth could not control Him
    They did not take his life--he laid it down
    All the chains of earth could never hope to hold him
    So in the night my hope lives on
