Turn the pages from the past
Put your worries in last place
In those fretting times
where hope has vanished
search for a caring embrace
Use a shoulder if it’s offered
when tears begin to fall
They’re not a sign of weakness
but a cleansing of the soul
Take advantage of the sunshine
warming your spirit with it’s rays
and even when the clouds are rolling
there’s always reason for praise
Faith, Love and Strength
follow Hope in each new day
and with each precious baby step
You will find your way
