Some say faith
Is just believing
Others say it's self decieving
Inventing, childish dreams
To get us through
Deep inside me
There's a yearning
For true wisdom
Not just learning
I'd trade all my clever questions
For one answer that is true
I do believe
You are the one
The home I've longed to find
My only hope
God's only son
I do believe
I touch I see
That all along
You've longed to be
My lord
My god
Lord you know, I need some answers
Questions eat at me like cancer
Make me once again, a simple child
Help me take the risk of losing
Lose it all to find in choosing
To believe You are the answer
Earth and heaven reconciled
I do believe
You are the one
The home I've longed to find
My only hope
God's only son
I do believe
I touch I see
That all along
You've longed to be
I do believe
You are the one
The home I've longed to find
My only hope
God's only son
I do believe
I touch, I see
That all along You've longed to be
My Lord
My GOD
My Lord
My GOD

    I do believe means that inside you you always confirm that he is alive and he is the reason for your living this very moment.

    Although i've never heard this song (i've been totally deaf, since 1971, when meningitis destroyed every iota of a 10-year old's hearing, but my love for music never changed) but, because gaither has, graciously, added captioning to his homecoming videos, i can understand it, with the same passion i've had for music, all these past 40 years. Now, with so many of my friends, from bible school, falling away and demanding i cannot prove god is real, i see this in the first verse... "some say faith is just believing... Others say it's self-deceiving... "
    however, nobody can come up with a plausible excuse as to why, after the doctors had given up on a half-dead 10-year old, who had been diagnosed, with meningitis in the latter stages, prayer has kept me alive, over 40 years and through four comas, seven brain surgeries and a host of other medical problems.

    All of these things, along with the fact that i have not one medical bill, to my name, that isn't being paid, i cannot imagine how anyone would think to say god has not only raised me out of four deathbeds (every doctor is shocked i am still here! ) but also provided my needs! Also, every time a new problem, be it medical or the fact that, having been declared disabled, leaves me with very little money, i am, repeatedly, able to approach the throne of the king, seeking his provision... And he is faithful!!
