thought for sunday

I belive for every drop of rain that falls

a flower grows

I belive that somewere in the darkest night

a candle glows

I belive for everyone who goes astray

someone will come

to show the way

I belive

I belive above a storm in the smallest prayer

can still be heard

I belive that someone in the great somewere

hears every word

everytime I hear a new born cry

or touch a leaf or see the sky

then I no why I BELIEVE

Words of hope, know the Batchelors made a version of this song, but can't recall who recorded the original or was it just them. The words are very poignant

Thanks for that one stone, did not realise that David Whitfield had released a version of I Believe. Perry Como was most likely the one I was trying to recall . Next time theres a music quiz on I will call on you for info.Sorry for the delayed response
