Hymn Of Promise

... pon­der­ing the death of a friend (life and death, death and re­sur­rect­ion),
pon­der­ing win­ter and spring (seem­ing op­po­sites),
and a T. S. El­i­ot poem which had the phrase, ‘In our end is our be­gin­ning.’
These seem­ing­ly con­tra­dic­to­ry ‘pairs’ led to the the­sis of the song and the hope­ful mes­sage that out of one will come the other when­ev­er God choos­es to bring that about...

Her hus­band, Dr. Ron­ald Sleeth, heard Hymn of Prom­ise short­ly be­fore he died, and asked that it be sung at his fun­er­al.

Words & Music: Nat­a­lie A. Sleeth, 1986

I have always like this hymn called "Hymn of Promise" - with contradictory pairs and fill with hope.

I find this site called Cyber Hymnal. It is a site relating to hymns, with over 5,200 hymns and gospel songs.

I think it's great for finding hymns relating to death, hope, wedding, marriage and many others.
