Hope is an angel good and kind
Who comes to help souls in despair.
Softly around her shoulders falls
A streaming mass of golden hair.
And in her lovely eyes of blue
There is a look of joy and peace,
And on her head a single star;
Oh, may her power never cease!
"Take heart," she says,
"And sigh no more;
Your sorrows may be at an end,
And all may turn out to be well;
So waste no time in fretting friend."
