Many nights we've prayed With no proof anyone could hear In our hearts a hopeful song We barely understood Now we are not afraid Although we know there's much to fear We were moving mountains Long before we knew we could
Chorus: There can be miracles When you believe Though hope is frail It's hard to kill Who knows what miracles You can achieve When you believe Somehow you will You will when you believe
In this time of fear When prayer so often proves in vain Hope seemed like the summer birds Too swiftly flown away Yet now I'm standing here My heart's so full, I can't explain Seeking faith and speaking words I never thought I'd say
They don't always happen when you ask And it's easy to give in to your fears But when you're blinded by your pain Can't see your way clear through the rain A small, but still, resilient voice Says help is very near

So even though both versions are on the soundtrack and in the film, Since Michelle and Sally recorded theirs earlier, the Mariah/Whitney version is considered a cover. So this song need to also go into the category of "More Songs Originally Recorded By Other Artists. Personally I like the original Pfeiffer/Dworsky duet better.
Jazzz from FrankfurtPretty good song, but it's one of those "God is light and love and happiness" kind of messages. They clearly tried to appeal to the biggest audience possible. Christianity has started to sell well. Oh, ok, in this song, Christ isn't even the topic, so even a happy Muslim or Jewish person will sing along. Let's all chime in "When you ..." Sorry for the sarcasm.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
