G   G/F#       Em    Em7     C              D7            G
I believe for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows;

G  G/F#   Em    Em7      Am7                  D7          G
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night, a candle glows.

G   Bm        C           F#7-5      
I believe for everyone who goes astray,

            B7                 Em     B+
Someone will come to show the way 

Am        Am+7 Am7   D7
I believe,     I believe.


G   G/F#    Em        Em7      C              D7               G
I believe above the storm the smallest prayer   will still be heard;

G   G/F#        Em     Em7    Am         Am7        D7      G   
I believe that someone in the great somewhere hears every word.


G             Bm             C       F#7
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry,

           B7                Em   B+   Em7
Or touch a leaf, or see the sky,

     C      Am7 D7       G
Then I know why I  be-lieve.


 G            Bm              C       F#7
 Every time I hear a newborn baby cry,

            B7               Em  B+  Em7
 Or touch a leaf, or see the sky,

     C       Am7 D7      G
 Then I know why I  be-lieve.
