Hope is more important to the human spirit than food and water is to the human body.
A hopeful day is just ahead,
when willing hearts share kind words said.
Agreement's nice, but not required
in conversation far from tired.
The joyful hearts are by the children led.

In hopeful life the spirit's fed
by words of Truth from jumping bed.
The childlike song has never mired
A hopeful day.

The hopeful ears hear story read
of One, Who came back from the dead
To teach all souls that Joy is fired
within the heart of child inspired.
He took the blame for us instead,
A hopeful day.
