Story Behind the Song

It is no exaggeration to say that Jim Papoulis is a globally recognized leader in his #1 genre -- Choral music. He and I have been partners/friends for years. (He did the arrangement for me of the state anthem of Virginia, "Our Great Virginia", which I'm proud to have authored. His music -- including this song, in particular -- has been featured at important special occasions ... from the inauguration of President Obama and other events of stature (opening of a Holocaust Museum for example.)

Lyrics

GIVE US HOPE ............

Lyrics by Jim Papoulis, Leo Schaff, Regine Urbach

Listen to the sound of my voice
Can you feel the beat of my heart
Listen to the questions I have
Listen to me

It's all very simple
To see what we need

Give us hope - my voice is calling
Can you see - look in my eyes
Can you feel - my hand is reaching
Give us hope and we'll show you the way

Listen to the sound of my voice (calling)
Can you feel the beat of my heart (pounding)
Listen to the questions I have (listen)
Listen to me

We are the future
Help us believe

Give us hope - my voice is calling
Can you see - look in my eyes
Can you feel - my hand is reaching
Give us hope and we'll show you the way

Take my hand, now look in my eyes
Tell me what you see

(2x) Give us hope - my voice is calling
Can you see - look in my eyes
Can you feel - my hand is reaching
Give us hope and we'll show you the way

Show you the way (my voice is calling)
Show you the way (my voice is calling)
Show you the way
