  • I believe for every drop of rain that falls
    A flower grows
    I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
    A candle glows
    I believe for everyone that goes astray
    Someone will come to show the way
    I believe
    I believe
    I believe above the storm the smallest prayer
    Will still be heard
    I believe that someone in the great somewhere
    Hears every word
    Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
    Or touch a leaf
    Or see the sky
    Then I know why
    I believe
    Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
    Or touch a leaf
    Or see the sky
    Then I know why
    I believe (Why I believe) Writer/s: Al Stillman, Ervin M Drake, Irwin Graham, Jimmy Shirl
