About the song "There Is Hope"
From the album - Me and My Guitar
Words and music, vocals and guitar by Rosemary Phillips, 2004

There is Hope was originally written for the second Festival of Freedom at the Forks in Grand Forks, B.C. held on the lawns of the Doukhobor Community Centre.

Since then the song has been sung at many peace functions, concerts and gatherings.

John J. Verigin
Dedication to John J. Verigin
It is my heart-felt wish to now dedicate this song to the memory of a great man who went "Home" on Sunday, October 26, 2008: John J. Verigin has been recognized as a leader among thousands of Canadian and Russian Doukhobors since 1939, and has served as Honourary Chairman of the USCC since 1962. He worked tirelessly for world peace.
For me personally I knew him briefly as my neighbour and wished I had known him when he was at the height of his activity and work. John, his family and community have left a mark on my life. My warmest wishes are extended to his wife Laura, sons J.J. and Barry, and daughter Nina and to the Doukhobor Community.
Please accept this song as my tribute and share it, sing it as solo, in choirs, in harmony - copy it - around the world - in peace and love - for There is Hope!

In Peace, Love and Gratitude
Rosemary

Lyrics

There is Hope
by Rosemary Phillips

There is hope… there is hope…
There is hope… there is hope…

When things are feeling rough - there’s always hope.
When the day seems really tough - there’s always hope.
We see it in the rainbow across the darkest sky
We see it in the twinkle of a young child’s eye.
There is hope… there is hope…

Hope for love and hope for peace
And hope for humankind.
Hope for our tomorrows
And hope for peace of mind… peace of mind.
There is hope… there is hope…

When nothing’s going right - there’s always hope.
When things seem such a fight - there’s always hope.
We see it in the rainbow across the darkest sky.
We see it in the twinkle of a young child’s eye.
There is hope… there is hope…

Hope for human beings
Walking hand in hand
Hope for true compassion
To love and understand… understand…
There is hope… there is hope…

We see it in the rainbow across the darkest sky.
We see it in the twinkle of a young child’s eye.
We see it in the rainbow across the darkest sky.
We see it in the twinkle of a young child’s eye.

There is hope… there is hope…

Hope for all creation
Upon this planet Earth.
Hope as life continues
With each new birth… each new birth…

There is hope… there is hope… there is hope… there is hope… (repeat to fade)
