Hope dwells in the heart
And flutters like butterfly wings,
Building strength of the spirit
To face the struggles life brings.
Hope glimmers and swells within
Even though the body grows weak,
And shines fiercely through the pain
As the comfort and healing we seek.
Hope bursts forth like flames,
Stronger than any disease,
And Victory is its name
For this hope will never cease!
