It is all the things that we need in this world to hold us

It aches, it’s like the innocence of child’s play

The joy in knowing that it will all be done

It is how we dance with the angels

In all things, it is love

Hope shelters us, blankets us with God’s understanding

Hope shows us in all things She loves us
