Hope’s the fiery, dancing light

    Which beams across the mind.

It’s there to lift us when depressed -

     It's God’s gift to mankind.


Hope sharpens our assumptions

    And hope lifts the human heart.

It illuminates the road ahead

    When it’s time to make that start.


When storms bombard our human lives

    And the future seems unclear,

It’s hope that sees us safely through

    And drives away our fear.


It’s the truest friend you’ll ever have

    As you move towards your goal

And hope, like love, was given by God,

     To bless our human soul.
