56. I Believe In You sung by Don Williams

I Believe In You” sung by Don Williams (click here to listen)

I don’t believe in superstars
Organic food and foreign cars
I don’t believe the price of gold
The certainty of growing old
That right is right and left is wrong
That north and south can’t get along
That east is east and west is west
And being first is always best
But I believe in love, I believe in babies
I believe in mom and dad, and I believe in you

Well I don’t believe that heaven waits
For only those who congregate
I like to think of God as love
He’s down below, He’s up above
He’s watching people everywhere
He knows who does and doesn’t care
And I’m an ordinary man
Sometimes I wonder who I am
But I believe in love,
I believe in music
I believe in magic,
and I believe in you
I know with all my certainty what’s goin’
With you and me is a good thing
It’s true, I believe in you

I don’t believe virginity
Is as common as it used to be
In working days and sleeping nights
That black is black and white is white
That Superman and Robin Hood
Are still alive in Hollywood
That gasoline’s in short supply
The rising cost of getting by
But I believe in love,
I believe in old folks
believe in children, I believe in you
I believe in love, I believe in babies
believe in mom and dad
And I believe in you

Be careful not to confuse the simple statement “I believe” with ‘I belief in’.  What we have in “I Believe” is an expression of faith, not an affirmation of religious belief. Jesus never asked people to believe in God or anything else; he asked them to simply believe. This kind of simple faith is the door to life through which Jesus invites us all. The above song, “I Believe in You,” is a different animal.  For a more thorough explanation, see “Faith” and “Religion/Theology” under “Words of the Word” on this website.
