Many nights we prayed 
With no proof anyone could hear 
In our hearts a hope for a 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, whoa, yes 

There can be miracles 
When you believe 
Though hope is frail 
Its hard to kill 

Who knows what miracles 
You can achieve 
When you believe somehow you will 
You will when you believe 

(Mmmmmmmmmyeah)
Mmmyeah 
In this time of fear 
When prayer so often proves in vain 

Hope seems like the summer bird 
Too swiftly flown away 
Yet now I'm standing here 
My hearts so full, I can't explain 

Seeking faith and speakin' words 
I never thought I'd say 
There can be miracles 
When you believe (When you believe) 

Though hope is frail 
Its hard to kill (Mmm) 
Who knows what miracles 
You can achieve (You can achieve) 

When you believe somehow you will 
You will when you believe 
(Hey) 
(Ooh) 

They don't always happen when you ask 
And its easy to give in to your fears 
But when you're blinded by your pain 
Can't see the way, get through the rain 

A small but still, resilient voice 
Says hope is very near, oh (Oh) 
There can be miracles (Miracles) 
When you believe (Boy, when you believe, yeah) (Though hope is frail) 

Though hope is frail (Its hard) 
Its hard to kill (Hard to kill, oh, yeah) 
Who knows what miracles 
You can achieve (You can achieve, oh) 

When you believe somehow you will (Somehow, somehow, somehow) 
Somehow you will (I know, I know, know) 
You will when you believe (When you) 
(Oh oh) 

(You will when you) 
(You will when you believe) 
(Ohoohooh) 
(Oh, oh) 

(When you believe) 
(When you believe)
