I Came To Believe

Album: Out Among the Stars (2014)
  • I couldn't manage the problem I laid on myself
    And it just made it worse when I laid them on somebody else
    So I finally surrendered it all, brought down in despair
    I cried out for help and I felt a warm comforter there

    And I came to believe in a power much higher than I
    I came to believe that I needed help to get by
    In childlike faith I gave in and gave him a try
    And I came to believe in a power much higher than I

    Nothing worked out when I handled it all on my own
    And each time I failed it made me feel twice as alone
    Then I cried "Lord there must be a surer and easier way
    For it just cannot be that a man should lose hope everyday"

    And I came to believe in a power much higher than I
    I came to believe that I needed help to get by
    In childlike faith I gave in and gave him a try
    Then I came to believe in a power much higher than I Writer/s: Johnny R. Cash
