Thread Name: Lyr Req: Whispering Hope
Subject: Lyr Add: WHISPERING HOPE (Added verse)^^
I have the sheet music here. One of my treasured pieces - learnt it in school way back when, on a plastic whistle.

The verses I have are:

No. 1: The first verse posted by Gene.

No. 2: The verse posted by Chicken Charlie

No. 3:

Life is a journey before us,
Thru [sic] the great forest unknown,
Yet ther eis courage in learning,
Never are we all alone;
There all around hope is waiting,
Waiting to shine thru our fears,
Waiting 'til dawn brings the sunshine,
Giving farewell to our tears.

Refrain:

Whispering hope
Oh, how welcome thy voice.
Making my heart
In its sorrow rejoice.

This sheet music was published by southern Music Pub Co, Sydney (Oz), 1950. Words & music by Alice Hawthorne.

The second verse and refrain posted by Gene sound like they have been reworked, because the message is slightly different from the sheet music version.
