Our Hope Is in You

O Lord, our hope is in you.
Remove far from us empty hopes
and presumptuous confidence.
Make our hearts so right
with your most holy and loving heart,
that hoping in you we may do good,
until that day when faith and hope
shall be abolished by sight and possession,
and love shall be all in all.
