When You Believe
by Mariah Carey



Many nights we 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 seems like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away
Yet now I'm standing here, my heart so full, I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I'd never thought I'd say

Chorus:

They don't always happen when you ask, ah
And it's easy to give in to your fear
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see you way clear through the rain
A small but still resilient voice
Says help is very near.

Chorus (add libbed):
There can be miracles (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
somehow you will
now you will
You will when you believe
