It redeems and looses bonds

Hope in God redeems those who have fallen into sin, restores the wounded to health and looses the bonds of the prisoners.  Hope rises like the rosy dawn in the moral firmament and illumines those darkened by the grime of the sorrowful soul. It pours the balm of comfort onto the wounds of the heart which is in mourning.
