HOPE- C 1989, By Dennis L. Knecht

Oh, Giver of Dreams-

We ask for your help now….

Please open your tool chest-

Please show us how….To sow and to reap-Need a sturdy plow….

We must plant every seed-

That time will allow….

We’ve seen many mirages-

Tried to capture illusions….

False treasures have unearthed

Too much confusion….Laced with weariness,Emptiness and confusion….

We seek to build on only love-

In this institution….

Oh, Giver of Life-

Please protect us from lies….

You command all the Magic-

All that swims, walks, and flies….

You could write our names

With clouds in the sky….

Yet- Men would seek-

A Scientific reason why….

Oh, Giver of Hope-

We know you are near….

Help light our darkness-

Help conquer our fears….

In less than a moment-

You can pass through the years….

Please show us the right path-

Please make it clear….

And when you lead others-

To our doors….

Help us to realize when-

They need Our help More….

Please lift up thier spirits-

And heal their sores,Replace walls with bridges-And eliminate Wars…

Yes, we shall be your tools-

Now we must understand….

Just as You supplied this rhyme-

And We supplied the Hand….So shall the Spirit travel-From Land to Land….

No wall can stop the Spirit-

It cannot be banned….

Through our Love- we shall build-

A Fellowship of Man!
