There is Hope

For the next couple of months I’ve decided to experiment with song lyrics. Don’t yet think I am good at this challenge, but ever seeing the movie – “I Can Only Imagine”, I decided to try it out since I know how much songs can impact people’s lives. On this blog, I am always trying to find ways to help the broken hearted through words, so, here we go.

For this first song, I decided to write about “Hope” since it is a strong word in my life. It is such a strong word that we named the daughter we miscarried Hope because we believe there still needed to be light even in the darkness. As for Hope, I think we all have hope of purpose and hope of bringing light even when life is crazy. Hope you like the song and look forward to hearing your feedback.

 

There is Hope

Looking onto the street

Beggars are at my feet

All I can say is there is Hope

 

The loss of a child

Drugs running wild

All I can say is there is Hope

 

The job’s not going right

The family’s in constant fights

All I can say is there is Hope

 

When sickness shows its ugly head

Your mind begs to be gone, be dead

All I can say is there is Hope

 

We all have a purpose

If we open our eyes wide and see

We can all bring change

With a little Hope just you and me

 

Hope of a higher power

Hope of a love divine

Hope of peace abounding

Hope that’s yours and mine

 

When asked why believe?

When it’s difficult to breathe

When God isn’t answering the door…

When you wonder what this life’s for

 

Why aren’t your dreams coming true

When you ask what else can you do

 

You’re sick of living with this awful pain

Why the ups, downs, and constant strain

 

You shout –give me patience, let me learn

In this life of heartache and burn

There is only one sentiment God’s grace can say

Don’t give up on hope either tomorrow or today

 

We all have a purpose

If we open our eyes wide and see

We can all bring change

With a little Hope just you and me

 

Hope of a higher power

Hope of a love divine

Hope of peace abounding

Hope that’s yours and mine

 

In a crazy world, can we find hope?

God, is it possible to truly cope?

 

The answer is yes if you pray and seek

If you stop turning the other cheek

 

If you find the purpose your soul longs for

Whether it’s the environment or helping those at war

Whether it’s helping a child in need or an animal in distress

Whether it’s helping the elderly or those who are homeless

 

Whether you work to end racism, bullying, and hate

Or whether helping the sick is your calling and fate

 

Hope is all around us if you’re willing to open your eyes wide

If in God you put your faith and you confide

It doesn’t matter if your purpose is here or overseas

What’s important is living your purpose throughout eternity

 

We all have a purpose

If we open our eyes wide and see

We can all bring change

With a little Hope just you and me

 

Hope of a higher power

Hope of a love divine

Hope of peace abounding

Hope that’s yours and mine
