Hi Devesh, 

The expression 'oser à peine + faire',  means to hardly /scarcely dare to do something, so you might say -

J'ose à peine espérer qu'ils viendront pour mon anniversaire = I can hardly dare hope that they will come for my birthday 

J'ose à peine vous dire ce qu'ils m'ont révélé I can hardly dare  tell you what they revealed to me

Hope this helps!
