"Olou Tou Kosmou I Elpida" (Greek: "Όλου του κόσμου η Ελπίδα", English: "The Whole World's Hope") was the Greek entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1992, performed in Greek by Cleopatra.

The song was performed fifth on the night, following Turkey's Aylin Vatankoş with "Yaz bitti" and preceding France's Kali with "Monté la riviè". At the close of voting, it had received 94 points, placing 5th in a field of 23, making it Greece's best showing in the Contest since Pascalis, Marianna, Robert & Bessy's "Mathima Solfege" in 1977, which also finished 5th.

The song is a ballad, with Cleopatra singing about the uncertainty of the modern world and asking that her song point the way to "the whole world's hope".

It was succeeded as Greek representative at the 1993 Contest by Katy Garbi with "Ellada, Hora Tou Fotos".
