There are just way too many songs of hope to remember the list could go on ans on But anyway here are a few


Amazing Grace, all nine verses
How can I keep from Singing
Bright Morning Stars are Rising
Be Thou My Vision
and I don't know if it would be considered Hopefull or not it is just the song I guess
Will Ye No Come Back Again
A Jacabite song askig if Bonnie Prince Charlie will ever return to his Native Scotland .

As I continue to pile up birthdays (70 + ), I think I like the chorus to "The 200 Year Old Alcoholic":

'It's never too late to start living,
To get out and have some fun.
The sun will be just as shiney in the morning
As the first day the world was born.'

Tommy Sands "We Will Rise again" would also be on my list, as would athie Ryan's version of "The Parting Glass."

Well, without trying to stumble into a nother Dylan debate, I DO think the When the Ship comes in is Hopeful. ...

The song is hopeful from the point of view of those who have been oppressed. It's a David and Goliath sort of thing, from my take on it.

Too many to pin one down, but I always liked "The Marvelous Toy," by Tom Paxton. When I look in my grandson's eyes as he hears it, I feel the sense of hope that each generation of children brings to the world. Innocence, however fragile and fleeting, is a human treasure.

Here's a song I love. It's sung here in Oz by The Wheeze and Suck Band.

The Goodnight Song - Jim Boyes

Chorus (after each verse):
So goodnight my friends as the dawn comes pale
And the Eastern wind brings the threat of gale
Keep a hold on hope through the darkest vale
And we'll meet further on down the road

I have travelled far from this island strand
From the icy wastes to the burning sand
Ploughed the raging sea, seen the verdant land
Been at home in a place far away

Many differences but much the same
Though the ways are strange and have different names
But a friendly face breaks a thousand chains
And a smile breaks the lock on the door

We have joined in song, laughed a night away
Swapped out tales of woe, kept the clouds at bay
In the morning clear will be on our way
But we'll meet further on down the road

So lets drink a health to good times gone by
When our spirits soared and we touched the sky
And we'll bid farewell but not goodbye
And we'll meet further on down the road

Chorus:
So goodnight my friends as the dawn comes pale
And the Eastern wind brings the threat of gales
Keep a hold on hope through the darkest vale
And we'll meet further on down the road
(repeat last two lines)

With apologies if I've not remembered the lyric exactly....
Not just the lyric - but a beautiful melody this one has too!

Somewhere along the road (Rick Kemp)

Somewhere along the road some one waits for me
Beyond these present storms that blow waiting patiently
No secrets held in an open heart
A spirit that soars on the mountains
Somewhere along the road some one waits for me

Somehow a guiding light always shows the way
To those that lose their way by night searching for the day
A day away from happiness
Tomorrow will bring a new sunrise
Somewhere along the road some one waits for me

Sometime when winds are still – unexpectedly
Perhaps beyond this silent hill a voice will call to me
Raise your eyes to see my world
Raise your voice and sing out
Somewhere along the road some one waits for me

A hymn, 'Blessed Quietness'

Blessed quietness, holy quietness
Such assurance in my soul
On the stormy sea, speaking peace to me
How the billows cease to roll.

and another song I've heard on the folk circuit, possibly sung by Dave & Anni, the chorus of which is:-

Row on, row on another day
Shall see a brighter light
Ply, ply the oars and pull away
There's dawn beyond the night

Hope I've got it right, nevertheless, its a lovely song with a great chorus

Andy

Great thread with great contributions. Some ideas for songs I must revist, and a few new ones. Thanks all. Let me add a vote for "Mary Ellen Carter," and "How Can I Keep From Singing." And let me add "Let The Band Play Dixie" by the late, great Bib Gibson, and also "Christmas in the Trenches" by John McCutcheon, both attesting to the power of song. How can you go wrong with that?

Just felt the need to refresh/ressurect this thread. I would add:
"God Bless the Grass" Malvina Reynolds
"The Great Storm is Over" Bob Franke
"Spirit Song" by Bill Staines - heard him do it in concert a few months ago in Ohio and the goose bumps have only started to subside - and incredible song.
"Canto De Esperanza" - an hispanic hymn that is in some of the newer hymnals.

In these days of political/cultural/economic unrest, it's easy to be cynical, much harder to raise a song of faith and trust in the future.
