Original Music by Dave Anthony
Hope Of The Future (original folk tune)
Lyrics
You are the hope
The hope of the future
You are the future
The hope of this world
You should be proud
So proud of this moment
And we are proud
So proud of what you've done

May you walk in golden sunlight
May the wind keep free your hair
May the stars shine through your darkness
May this earth be yours to share

You are the faith
The faith of the future
And for the future
We put our faith in you
You are the love
The love of the future
And in this moment
We share our love with you

May you walk in golden sunlight
May the wind keep free your hair
May the stars shine trhough your darkness
May this earth be yours to share
