WHAT IS THE SONG ABOUT?

"...to those of you... who long for change. Have hope. It will not always be so."

"Fresh springs of faith and assurance are pouring forth, cheering the spirits of those touched by their reviving waters. In places, the flow is a steady stream, in some, already a river. Now is not the moment for any oul to linger upon the bank-let all lend themselves to the onward surge."

WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE SONG?

How can we contribute our talents to the progress of those around us? How can we organize our talents so that together we can make a powerful difference?

These were the topics we discussed with a group of some twenty five youth a while ago. We felt inspired. And in the inspiration we made music. It was so nice that we decided to record it.

Fresh springs of faith and assurance
are pouring forth
Cheering the spirits of those touched by their
reviving waters

In places, the flow is a steady stream
In some, already a river
Now is not the moment
To linger

Let all lend themselves
To the onward surge

Have hope
Have hope
Have hope
It will not always be so
