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 yeah

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, yeah

In this time of fear when prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds too swiftly flown away
And 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
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

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

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
Now you will, you will when you believe

You will when you believe
Just believe, just believe
You will know when you believe

    This is a song of faith for all who are going through hard times and there seems to be no sign of hope

    I guess the song mean that regardless of what setbacks you faced, if you truly believe you can, then you can. This is about faith.

    I think that this is one of the most inspiring songs about the true meaning of faith. True faith is proved and tested in the fire of distress. When you have this kind of faith nothing is impossible for you and this song is a great reminder of it.

    When you have a great faith to him, believe on every dream you dreamt.. There's no wrong on hoping for something that you wish to happen, just trust and believe in the power of faith...

    Just believe!...

    In my words, when we have faith in god anything is possible as long it is god's will. Everything is possible with god who gives me strength.
