Hope



Hope

Every morning hope and pray
That there'll be peace on earth someday
That all the nations open their eyes
To reveal the truth and not fill us with lies
To hear the cries of nature's call
To stop the famine and stop the war
There's a light spirit within us all
Just waiting for an open door
Love and kindness is what we need
For us as humans to succeed
