With an act of faith, all the mountains would move
And the rain would stop all around
With an act of faith, all the dogs would stop barking
And we could move out of this town
Oh, the road up ahead would open up wide
We'd be the only ones at the line
With an act of faith
With an act of faith
With an act of faith
It'd be fine
With an act of faith, we could throw off the dust around
Leave the past way behind
We'd turn over those rocks and buy brand-new clean socks
And who knows what our shoes may soon find
All the birds in the trees would sing sweet harmony
And bring earthworms to eat on our way
With an act of faith
With an act of faith
With an act of faith
It's our day
Now I've heard what begins with an act of faith
Can bring about changes in life
Yeah, any bum on the street would stand up on his feet
And walk in direction of light
Yeah, up ahead I think I see some light!
We can bandage all the fences broken
Come together and shake hands like friends
With an act of faith
With an act of faith
With an act of faith
It begins
Right where this road used to end
