I Believe

There’s a tension there’s a struggle
Finding God in the middle of your darkest struggle
Breaking down, crying out, beside yourself with no way up
No way out but Him to turn and lift you up
And you say

I believe in God
I believe in Love

I believe that the gospel makes sense living out on the street
At every level of poverty, justice, faith and peace
I believe redemption and salvation are a gift
Given by the hand of God to all who receive it
I say

Jesus risked His reputation being a friend of mine
I think He’s been the most misunderstood, misquoted and maligned
I believe in the wonder of healing for the abused, used and scarred
How else could I believe enough when the victim’s been a child
Because I say

I believe the door has been opened and the night’s been left behind
Every light has been turned on and I’ve been lit inside
I believe the Father’s waiting, watching down the road
Running outside the moment a child starts making for home
God is Love
