about

"I Believe" was posed as a one hour song skirmish title on a Sunday morning. FAWM also has a tradition of writing a gospel song as your first fruits of the year. This year it was my 13th song.

I used my 5 string baritone uke with slide in open G for this one.

I tried to reflect on two very different creeds-- That of my Catholic Faith, and those in John Lennon's Imagine.

I Believe

baritone uke open G

I believe in God the Father
I believe in His only Son
I believe in the Holy Sprit
Somehow three, yet are One

I believe, I believe
Please Sweet Lord teach me how to believe (Repeat)

I believe even when I don't feel it.
I believe even though I can't see
I believe you help me believe in you
Cause I know you believe in me.

I believe there is a heaven
I believe in a brotherhood of man
I believe if we share our possessions
We can feed everyone in every land.
