This Is Faith


Based on a poem by Amatu’l-Bahá Rúḥíyyih Khánum

Capo III

G | D | C | C

To walk where there is no path, to breathe where there is no air
To see where there is no light
|| This is Faith || 6x

To cry out in the silence, the silence of the night,
And hearing no echo believe, and believe again and again
|| This is Faith || 6x

To hold pebbles and see jewels, to raise sticks and see forests
To smile with weeping eyes
|| This is Faith || 6x

To say: “God, I believe” when others deny,
“I hear” when there is no answer, “I see” though naught is seen
|| This is Faith || 9x
