The Excitement of Hope





Dawn excites the morning sky
As gold excites the blue
And hope excites the mortal mind
Like nothing else can do

Desire excites dreams of youth
And want excites the fight
But hope excites immortal truth
As dreams of youth take flight

A bride excites her waiting Groom
A bow excites the string
And hope excites a heart of gloom
Like bud excites the spring

Yes, dawn excites the morning span
As mercy’s gilds its main
But hope excites the heart of man
To rise and try again
