Soft as the voice of an angel Breathing a lesson unheard Hope with a gentle persuasion Whispers her comforting word Wait till the darkness is over Wait till the tempest is done Hope for the sunshine tomorrow After the shower is gone Whispering hope, oh, how welcome thy voice Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice If in the dusk of the twilight Dim be the region afar Will not the deepening darkness Brighten the glimmering star Then when the night is upon us Why should the heart sink away When the dark midnight is over Watch for the breaking of day Whispering hope, oh, how welcome thy voice Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice Hope, as an anchor so steadfast Rends the dark veil for the soul Whither the Master has entered Robbing the grave of its goal Come then, oh come, glad fruition Come to my sad weary heart Come, oh thou blest hope of glory Never, oh never depart Whispering hope, oh, how welcome thy voice Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice ******************** DICK CURLESS sang a completely different set of lyrics to the same tune in his 1959 recording: Like the faint dawn of the morning Like the sweet freshness of dew Comes the dear whisper of Jesus Comforting tender and true Darkness gives way to the sunlight While His voice falls on my ear Seasons of Heaven's refreshing Call to new gladness and cheer Whispering hope like the song of the angels Jesus, Thy love is sweet music to me Singing the song of forgiveness Softly I hear in my soul Jesus has conquered forever Sin with its fearful control Whispering hope of His coming How my heart thrills at His word Oh, to be watching and waiting Ready to welcome the Lord Whispering hope like the song of the angels Jesus, Thy love is sweet music to me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2013)
