Take me back to the time when I was maybe eight or nine
And I believed
When Jesus walked on waters blue and if He helped me I could too
If I believed
Before rationale, analysis, and systematic thinking
Robbed me of a sweet simplicity
When wonders and when mysteries were far less often silly dreams
And childhood fantasies

(chorus)
Help me believe
'Cause I don't want to miss any miracles
Maybe I'd see much better by closing my eyes
And I would shed this grown-up skin I'm in
To touch an angel's wing
And I would be free
Help me believe

When mustard seeds made mountains move, a burning bush that spoke for You
Was good enough
When manna fell from heavens high just because you told the sky
To open up
Am I too wise to recognize that everything uncertain
Is certainly a possibility?
When logic fails my reasoning and science crushes underneath
The weight of all that is unseen

Help me believe
'Cause I don't want to miss any miracles
Maybe I'd see much better by closing my eyes
And I would shed this grown-up skin I'm in
To touch an angel's wing
And I would be free
Help me believe

When someone else's education plays upon my reservations
I'm the first to cave, I'm the first to bleed
If I abandoned all that seeks to make my faith informed and chic
Could You, would You, show Yourself to me?

Help me believe
'Cause I don't want to miss any miracles
Maybe I'd see much better by closing my eyes
And I would shed this grown-up skin I'm in
To touch one of their wings
And I would be free
I would be free
I would be free
Help me believe
Help me believe

Could You, would You, show Yourself to me?
Could You, would You, show Yourself to me?
Help me believe...

    General CommentBeautiful song about asking God to help her to believe in the miracles He has done and can do in her life, instead of trusting so much in the things we can see and are seen as rational. Her lyrics and the music make a wonderful song.

    In the first verse, she has a desire to have her childlike mind back, where she could more easily believe in Him in contrast to what we tend to view as "silly dreams".
    The second verse is about the stories she has been told in the bible and how they actually make more sense to her and are easier to understand than science, which "crushes underneath".
    Then the bridge is about her being disappointed in the fact that what other people who think they are well-informed tell her she actually believes, but she knows that if she got rid of that God would give her the faith He knows she wants.
    The chorus is where she asks for God to take away the "grown-up skin" that seems to get in the way of their relationship and her faith in him.
