Willie Nelson - Whispering Hope Lyrics

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, O come, glad fruition, come to my sad weary heart
Come, O Thou blest hope of glory, never, O never depart

Whispering hope, oh, how welcome thy voice
Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice

Willie Nelson Whispering Hope Comments
  1. Thanks for your watching

    Tell me if you have hope, my life is no longer ahead.(*_ _)


    For my Rabbit whom I loved some seventy years ago and I am still in love with some 80 years later. One of the finest of mentors who taught a whole bunch of kids what it meant to love Jesus!

  3. Mara Karetsos

  5. Doris Johansson

  6. kenvsnow

    Far from the best rendition but he does sing it just as it was written with all three versus, the third of which is so important.

  7. Foggy Ozark Gems

    this song brings back memories long ago of the hoot-nannies/shindigs my folks hosted. we sang this in the 60s when i was a kid accompanied by 10 harmonizing voices (and sometimes a howling pooch ;D, fiddle and mandolin brothers team, several accoustic guitars and super banjo by a man who Chet Atkins liked jamming with so much, he'd send him a round trip ticket just to hear him play. he could play Yankee Doodle Dandy on the body end of the banjo and the National Anthem in tandum on the neck end (all mouths drop open at first when they realize what he is doing with that banjo ;). Whispering Hope usually would be sung as the shindig neared the wee hours.... A great wind-down song too!

    I remember singing this song in church with my dear sweet grandmother. I was just a kid but it was a song I loved to sing with her. I sure do hope and pray I will see her again. She taught me so much and molded me to be a good person. Thank you grandma you have always been in my heart and taught me so much.xxxx

  18. Jim Malcolm

    Whispering Hope and Precious Memories two of my own personal favorite Willie songs ever. So deep and soothing. Back in the Mid 70's no-one was singing these songs, or wearing an earring. except The Great "Everest" Willie Nelson

    Steven John Phillips

    Jim Malcolm try slim Whitman he sang all of them, better than most although Willie is very good.

    a song that will last for a lifetime...beautiful song that never dies....
