What will be left when I've drawn my last breath  Besides the folks I've met and the folks who know me
Will I discover a soul saving love or
Just the dirt above and below me?

I'm a doubting Thomas
I took a promise 
I do not feel safe
O' me of little faith

 Sometimes I pray for a slap in the face
Then I beg to be spared cause I'm a coward 
If there's a master of death I bet he's holding his breath  Cause I show the blind and tell the deaf
 About his power 

I'm a doubting Thomas
I can't keep my promises  Cause I don't know what's safe
O' me of little faith

Can I be used to help others find truth 
When I'm scared that I'll find proof that it's a lie
Can I be led down a trail dropping bread crumbs
To prove I'm not ready to die

 Please give me time to decipher the signs  Please forgive me for time that I've wasted 

I'm a doubting Thomas
I'll take your promise  Though I know nothing's safe
O' me of little faith
O' me of little faith
