Am G Am
I am an atheist when it comes to the god of violent jihad.
Am G Am
I am an atheist when it comes to the lord who converts by the sword
Am G Am G Am
I am an atheist when it comes to the mission of politicians using religion as ammunition.

Am – A9 G/A
I believe in you - the artist of trees and galaxies
A G/A
I believe in you - the poet of oceans and rivers and streams
A G/A
I believe in you - the god of compassion who calls us to action
A G/A
I believe in you

X/A
I can’t believe what they believe but I believe in you (4X)
I can’t believe what they believe but I believe in you (4X)

I believe in you - majestic designer of space and time
I believe in you - composer of beauty and music of life
I believe in you - the holy forgiver and wild reconciler
I believe in you

I am an atheist to the gods of the greedy ignoring the needy.
I am an atheist to the gods who make others torture and suffer
I am an atheist when it comes to the view of the chosen few, who judge and condemn all who differ them.

I believe in you … mighty in meekness and gentle in power
I believe in you … the word who has spoken good news to the broken
I believe in you … Transcending mystery, with us in history
I believe in you
