I choose to hope.
I will not fear
although the shadow stands so near.
I choose to see
the shining light
that makes the darkness clear and bright.
I choose the joy
of loving life
despite the pressure, toil and strife.
I choose to pray,
for you are there.
"Jehovah Shammah" is my prayer.
I choose to hope,
rejoice and pray.
For You, O God, are here, today."
