Paul Gerhardt endured struggles and challenges beyond what most of us can imagine. Yet not only did he sing, but he wrote for others to sing songs of confident hope! How? Why? Because the message of Christ's love for him and the promises of Scripture were near and dear to him and they spoke (yes, even sang!) to his heart and to his life. They gave him the confidence to trust in God and to rejoice even in the darkest times. And we can do the same. So with Gerhardt and with each other, we can "Sing Songs of Confident Hope!"
