I believe in boys and girls
who grow up and change the world —
listening to the heavenly breeze,
waiting to learn God’s mysteries,
deciding which path in life to choose —
walking with God, you cannot lose.
Whether you are young or old,
the story of God can always be told;
the story of God is your story, too —
the next chapter is up to you.
I believe that God is all.
I believe he’ll never fall.
I believe he shines on Earth.
He will always bring good birth.
