Many nights we've 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 (oh yes)

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 (oh yeah)

In this time of fear
When prayers so often prove in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
So swiftly flown away

Yet now I'm standing here
My heart's so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say

There can be miracles, when you believe(When you believe)
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve(You can achieve)
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe

They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fears(oh)
But when your blinded by your pain
Can't see your way straight through the rain
A small but still, resilient voice
Says love is very near(Yeah Yeah)

There can be miracles(miracles)
When you believe(lord when you believe oh ho)
Through hope is frail(through hope is frail)
It's hard to kill(it's hard to kill oh oh)
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe(ooh ooh)
Somehow you will
Somehow you will
You will when you believe

You will when you believe
Just believe(2 times) (oh yeah)
You will when you believe

    the thought of this song is certified true! if u have faith in both of u, faith in ur relationship. if u believe that it'll always be both of u til the end of time. no matter what happens... u'll find each other. that's faith. that's true love.

    -and a tear falls from the left eye.

    It is about god. Moses and his people, others messanger, and also us... When you believe in god... In this time of fear, when prayer often prove in vain... Because of that reason... Many of human didnt believe in god...

    Although they need god, because human is a weak creature... But they loose hope... Toward god...

    We like to hear this song... Because in our deep heart... We realize or not... We want god to help us... And we miss god really much

    I sang this song in chorus in my 7th grade year for the 8th graders who were getting promoted... This song has a double meaning to me... One thats religious and one thats basically telling you to hold on and nothing is ever as bad as you think it is, or is going to be.
