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 since 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.
