The song was inspired by volunteer work in a very poor area of Knoxville, Tennessee, where two elderly African-American women feed thousands of hungry people every week.

Lyrics

TODAY I SAW HOPE

verse 1
The lonely, the angry,
the children who cry.
The sleep that don't come,
The hunger going unsatisfied.
The sickness that rages,
the fear that's in charge.
The helpless, the youngest,
forgotten by god.

Cause

chorus
Up from the darkness
sometimes a bright light comes.
And then there is glory,
and despair is undone.
A heart reaches out
and makes the whole world smile.
TODAY I SAW HOPE
in the eyes of a child.

verse 2
The fields are all dying,
the houses are gone.
The road going nowhere.
possibility is done.
The world is abandoned,
people waiting to die.
The weakest, the oldest,
no tears left to cry.

But then

chorus

and all it takes is love
