"Faith Of A Child" as written by and Bill Miller....
A child will walk, a child will run
A child with faith, faith will fly
Anita hasn't walked right since she was small
Her legs are short and twisted not straight and tall
She learned when she was young how to deal with the rejection
Cast into a world with all it standards of perfection
Most people looked away with a downward glance
And as a beautiful young woman, she was never asked to dance
Her dreams were just as lofty as the girl next door
And she remember what her father said when she couldn't take no more
He said
Someday your going to soar like a eagle,
You will run and never grow tired
You'll become a new creation
If you just keep the faith of a child,
Keep the faith of a child
Now Anita lives alone in a paper mill town
In a one room apartment at sixth and brown
She's got a steady job well its all right for now
She has plans for moving on if she can make it some how
Her brown hands are folded as she bows her head to pray
Over doughnuts and some coffee she made up yesterday
Her mind begins to travel, she gives thanks to the lord
And a angel stands beside her, points out to the door
And said
Today you going to soar like a eagle
You will run and never grow tired
You've become a new creation
For you have kept the faith of a child
Kept the faith of a child, kept the faith of a child

    General CommentThis song is great. Its about a girl with a dissability and she is losing it and wishes she was normal. Her father tells her:
    "Someday your going to soar like a eagle,
    You will run and never grow tired
    You'll become a new creation
    If you just keep the faith of a child,
    Keep the faith of a child"
    Towards the end of the song, an angel comes to her and tells her she will "become a new creation" because she has "kept the faith of a child".

    General CommentI have heard that this song is about Bill Miller's adopted daughter. She was born with the disability Spina Bifida, which can often affect a person's ability to walk.

    Personally, I don't take the last stanza literally. I take it to mean that because she has kept the faith of a child, Bill's daughter (whom I believe is still alive) will accomplish great things in life.
