Hope

Loz Lawrey

Lyrical, melodic songs on themes of hope and social justice from an Australian singer songwriter.

Loz Lawrey - Hope Please enjoy the songs on this album. They spring from a yearning for social justice, celebrating leaders who work for the common good and decrying the darkness of those who would divide us and deny our shared humanity. Some of these songs protest the evils inflicted by the few upon the many. Others honour our human instinct for compassion, inclusion, equality and fair treatment for all. May we never lose sight of hope, our lamp in the darkness, our light on the hill.

Hope is a human capacity. We are gifted with an innate ability to visualise, yearn for and create a better world in which the fulfillment of our human potential is a real possibility. Sometimes hope is all we have. When it seems we have nothing left and no further to fall, hope's beckoning light remains. Hope keeps us going, onwards and upwards. Hope provides the vision that inspires and motivates us to come together, care for each other and build a society of mutual respect, encouragement and support. Without hope, we have nothing.
