A star of hope is bright and warm
with a glow of love that beams;
An earnest and eager offer of help
gives faith for golden dreams.
A cheerful understanding flows
with enthusiasm and grace
Given freely to the heart's content
that shows in a volunteer's face.
Without them there would be less
hope - less promise of blue skies;
Our thanks to the army of volunteers
- God's angels in disguise.
