I do hope to hear from you

When you write a letter, can I place ' do ' in front of hope to emphasize the meaning, such as

I have included my resume for your interview, and I do hope to hear from you.

    It doesn't seem to serve a purpose in this phrase, so I wouldn't use "do hope".
    I suppose you could say "I sincerely hope to hear from you soon" but again, I think that this may be strange.

    Then, grammatically, can I place do, such as I do hope to pass the test, but not I do hope to hear from you because it sounds strange?
