I Believe 我相信

  Introduction

  Perry Como has achieved many successes. His own weekly syndicated TV show, hit songs and movie appearances, are just a few of his accomplishments.

  The following song was written in 1952 for the TV series  called “USA Canteen. ”It has since become recognized as one of America's best inspirational songs. All of us run into at least a couple of major problems as we live out the choice we have made. Frequently there are no simple and logical answers.

  There are a few stories that the army can teach you just three things:1.Dig a deep foxhole; 2.Jump into the foxhole whenever you hear a noise; 3.When the noises are very loud, there are no atheists in foxholes.

  Humans in difficult situations have a strong tendency to recognize and accept that there must be some immortal higher power in  the  universe. Despite your best efforts to solve a problem, do you sometimes conclude that in the end the result will be decided by God?

  I Believe

  Written by Drake, Graham, Shirl and Stillman Sung by Perry Como Orchestra and Chorus Directed by Mitchell Ayres

  I believe for every drop of rain that falls,

  a flower grows.

  I believe that somewhere in the darkest night,

  a candle glows.

  I believe for everyone who goes astray,

  someone will come to show the way.

  I believe, I believe.

  I believe above the storm the smallest

  prayer will still be heard.

  I believe that someone in the great somewhere

  hears every word.

  Every time I  hear a newborn baby cry or

  touch a leaf or see the sky,

  Then I  know, why I  believe.

  I believe above the storm the smallest

  prayer will still be heard.

  I believe that someone in the great somewhere

  hears every word.

  Every time I hear a newborn baby cry or

  touch a leaf or see the sky,

  Then I know why I believe.

  [参考译文]

  我相信

  我相信每下一滴雨

  就有一朵花生长。

  我相信即使在漆黑的夜晚,

  也有一根蜡烛在某处燃烧。

  我相信对每一个误入歧途的人,

  总会有人前来指引。

  我相信,我相信。

  我相信越过狂风暴雨,

  最小声的祈祷也会被听见。

  我相信天国里

  有人会听见祈祷的每个字。

  每当我听见新生婴儿哭泣,

  或触摸一片树叶,或仰望天空,

  我就明白了我为什么相信。

  我相信越过狂风暴雨,

  最细小声的祈祷也会被听见。
