I believe in mistakes and accidents 
That the nature of life is chaos and confusion 
That man's rules of law and order 
May not stand 

And I should be and be not afraid 
To reach for heaven 

I may think that I know
The true heart's needs 
But my pride may bring me low
 Unable to see
I'm no closer than yesterday 
But tomorrow I may stand 

And be and be not afraid 
To reach for heaven 

I'll see the black car cavalcade 
 Lights on in the morn
I'll run fast and far away
I'll run without stopping
Til hear and feet fail
Or until I can stand 

And be and be not afraid 

Be and be not afraid 
Be and be not afraid 
To reach for heaven
