Songs of Hope
We’re putting a melodic spin on our series we call The Hope Chronicles, sharing with you a collection of songs that keep us grounded in hope. Whether it’s the lyrics, the beat, the melody, or the space in between, our wish is that this music feeds your sense of hope and belief – even if just for a few minutes.
The songs are listed individually throughout this page and at the end, we share a full playlist of our collection via YouTube. The playlist can also be accessed via Apple Music and Spotify for you to save to your personal devices. Tap one of these links to open and save the playlist in your preferred music streaming account: Apple Music and Spotify.

A message of resilience mixed with some much-needed dance nostalgia.

Don’t Stop Believing – Journey
Don’t stop believin’ / Hold on to that feeling
Need we say more? The only bad thing about this song is that it ends.
Rise Up – Andra Day
And I’ll rise up, I’ll rise like the day / I’ll rise up, I’ll rise unafraid / I’ll rise up, and I’ll do it a thousand times again
A song for when you need the strength to face everything.
Let it Be – The Beatles
And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me / Shine until tomorrow, let it be
Was there ever a song that gave more comfort?
Don’t Worry, Be Happy –
In every life we have some trouble / When you worry you make it double / Don’t worry, be happy
Be a warrior, not a worrier.
Keep Your Head Up –
The glow that the sun gets right around sunset helps me to realize / This is just a journey, drop your worries, you are gonna turn out fine
Keeping our heads up during quarantine!
What the World Needs Now is Love – Burt Bacharach
What the world needs now is love, sweet love / No, not just for some but for everyone.
Love sweet love… From 6 feet away…
