Story

Eliza: vocal and banjo

 

While working at the YWCA as a fitness assistant (and eventually the Diabetes Wellness Coordinator), I encountered some of the the wisest and most generous human beings.  One of those was a man named Joe, who gave quite a gift to all with his story, told on a treadmill with sparkling eyes.  He is the man speaking and I am the 'she' listening. This song took on new meaning with the last verse and became quite healing for me personally.  I've enjoyed being asked to sing this song in churches, as it is about Jesus.

Lyrics

Chorus:

Believe in me

Believe in me

Restful hearts I’ll gently make,

If you believe in me.

 

Verse:

He told her how his life had changed

And how he heard he who came

Upon that Gospel ship say,

 

Chorus

 

Verse:

Who he’d been, a long time ago,

He’d nothing left to lose.

So he gave the Seed of Righteousness

His heart with which to prove, when he heard,

 

Chorus

 

Verse:

You may think you’re terrible,

That there’s no good in you.

But let your self be loved by God,

You’ve been forgiven, too.

 

Chorus
