RAYS OF HOPE

WE TRAVEL THROUGH THIS LIFE 
SOME HAVE PLENTY SOME HAVE NOT 
BUT WE CAN MAKE IT BETTER 
BY SHARING WHAT WE GOT 
SUCH A LITTLE GIFT 
CAN MAKE THE CHILDREN DANCE AND SING 
SUCH A LITTLE GIFT 
BUT LOOK AT ALL THE HAPPINESS IT BRINGS 

YOU CAN BE A RAY OF HOPE 
DANCING IN THE SON’S LIGHT 
COME BE A RAY OF HOPE 
TURNING THE DARKNESS INTO LIGHT
 

WE RUN THROUGH ALL OUR DAYS 
BUT THERE ARE SOME WHO GET LEFT BEHIND 
LET US STOP AND TAKE THE TIME 
TO SHARE THE STORY OF THEIR LIVES 
VERY SIMPLE PLEASURES 
LIKE A SACK OF MARKET BEANS 
CAN BRIGHHTEN LITTLE FACES 
WITH AN ANGEL’S SMILE THAT BEAMS 

CHORUS 

LATE AT NIGHT BY CANDLE LIGHT 
A STORY CAN BE SHARED 
AND WITH A GRATEFUL HEART 
A YOUNG BOY LAYS DOWN HIS WEARY HEAD 
BUT WHEN THE MORNING SUNLIGHT 
RISES UP IN THE SKY OF BLUE 
ALL THE BEAUTY OF THIS WONDEROUS LAND 
IS THERE TO WELCOME YOU

Visiting Africa opened my eyes to how well off we are in North America, yet many in Africa are more grateful than we are, for the little they have. Jesus encouraged us to help the poor and even went on to say that when we do, we are doing it to Him Mt 25:40. let us all be rays of hope to those less fortunate than us for Jesus’ sake, who gave His best for us Ro 5:6,7,8.
