A Gift of Hope

by Charles S. Parnell

Give me a gift that none can give,

A gfit of hope, a reason to live.

Grant me this gift within your reach,

A lesson to learn, a lesson to teach.

 

Give me the faculty to cry,

To start again, a reason why.

Grant me the strength to fill the need

As never before, in word and deed.

 

Grant me a life to live in hope,

To smile each day, to fully cope.

Grant me this gift, I ask once more,

From your full house to my front door.

 

This gift of hope will fill a need;

From dusk ’til dawn it scatters seed.

And when this gift is mine to keep,

Calm comes again like peaceful sleep.
