Beautiful melodies, beautiful thoughts. One was a hit for Frankie Laine in 1953, the other is from Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Carousel." Though both are familiar to most people, I heard "I Believe" as a classical tone poem. Both songs are simple stories about faith, and I wanted to revisit them in a less traditional way.

I believe for every drop of rain that falls
A flower grows
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
A candle glows
I believe for everyone who goes astray
Someone will come to show the way
I believe
I believe

I believe above the storm the smallest prayer
Will still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere
Hears every word
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf, or see the sky
Then I know why
I believe

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your hegifs
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
