I Came to Believe - Johnny Cash

I couldn't manage the problems,
I laid on myself.
And it just made it worse,
When I laid them on somebody else.
So I fin'lly surrendered it all,
Brought down in despair.
I cried out for help,
And I felt a warm comforter there.

And I came to believe,
In a power much higher than I.
I came to believe,
That I needed help to get by.
In child-like faith,
I gave in and gave Him a try.
And I came to believe,
In a power much higher than I.

Instrumental Break.

Nothin' worked out,
When I handled it all on my own.
And each time I failed,
It made me feel twice as alone.
Then I cried: "Lord, there must be,
"A surer and easier way."
For it just cannot be,
That a man should lose hope every day.

And I came to believe,
In a power much higher than I.
I came to believe,
That I needed help to get by.
In child-like faith,
I gave in and gave Him a try.
Then I came to believe,
In a power much higher than I.

Yes, I came to believe,
In a power much higher than I.
