Anna's Hope - A Song of Testimony of Biblical Anna, Who was Waiting to See Her Salvation!

This song is the personal testimony of Anna the prophetess, the daughter of Penhanuel, of the tribe of Aser, of the people of Israel (Luke 2:36-38)! It is in the time of great Roman oppression and Anna has experienced and observed the despair of her people and the mighty oppressive power of Rome and her armies for many years. Notice in the lyrics of this song that Almighty God; her Lord and Savior; is ALWAYS observing her and taking care of her! She is ALWAYS in His ETERNAL presence and watchful eye. He always is hearing her prayers and sees her sincere fasting for her people Israel, as she awaits Messiah her Salvation to come! Almighty God loves her with an ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS LOVE and after many years of waiting for her Propitiation and Lamb (Isa. 53); her joy is finally fulfilled when she sees her Savior and Redemption! She then makes haste to let all know that Almighty God's day of redemption has now come just as Almighty God had promised and spoke about for many years (Gen. 3:15; 12:3; 18:18; 22:18-19; Num. 24:17, Isa. 7:14; 9:6; 11:1, Jer. 23:5; Micah 5:2)!  Almighty God always fulfills His Word and promises and they ALWAYS are trustworthy and sound for the child of God to find great hope and consolation in this fallen world (Mal. 3:6, John 14:1-2, 2 Cor. 1:20, Heb. 6:10; 13:8, Rev. 4-5).

"And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem". Luke 2:36-38
Lyrics to, "Anna's Hope" 

The Lord observing, in His PERFECT love, His beloved child Anna
Anna waits for the sun to arise, as she reflects over her aged life
Anna's joy and great hope in such days, is in the promises that the Lord made

Anna fasts and prays to the Lord to personally see her Salvation and for her people Israel
My soul groans within my heart, to see your Salvation my God
With delight do I fast and I pray, that thy people would walk in thy ways
In all of my years, when my meat has been my tears, You have always been my Hope

The Lord sees, hears and answers Anna
I Am with thee my dear child, I Am with thee My dear child (repeats)
Anna fasts and prays
My dear Lord hear Ye my prayers, as I await Thy RIGHTEOUS One

The Lord and Anna have the same mind, heart, and desire in prayer and fellowship
After many long years, I have waited Lord, to behold Thy Promise One
O blind fools and perishing, behold your Lamb and King, God's Day of Salvation has come!

Anna's Joy is fulfilled in seeing Her Salvation the baby Jesus!
Now my joy is complete my God, for I've seen my Lamb and my God
