Desmond Child – A Ray Of Hope lyrics

Blessed are the merciful
For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the meek
For they shall possess the earth.

I am a man
Or sometimes I'm a child
I'm caught up in a struggle,
Has me runnin' wild.

The angel on my shoulder
And the Devil at my feet.
The apple of temptation
Held in front of me.

And I will try
Every day to be a better man
And send a wave of love
To everyone I can.

And I believe
That there's a ray of hope.
Of light that's shining down from heaven.

Say a prayer
For the unfortunate man
Who knows of no salvation
And greed is his religion.

Say a prayer for the men
Who don't practice what they preach.
For children and the innocent
Misled by what they teach.

And I will try
Every day to be a better man
And send a wave of love
To everyone I can.

And I believe
That there's a ray of hope.
Of light that's shining down from heaven.

Oh, as I walk
Down these city streets
I see a side of life
That isn't always pretty.

But I know
That we're all part of His plan.
Saints and sinners, all of us
Walking hand-in-hand.

So we strive
Every day to be better men.
And send a wave of love
To everyone we can.

And I believe
That there's a ray of hope.
Of light that's shining down from heaven.

Of light that's shining down from heaven.
