You Have To Believe
by Douglas Malloch

You have to believe in happiness,
Or happiness never comes.
I know that a bird chirps none the less
When all that he finds is crumbs.
You have to believe the buds will blow, -
Believe in the grass in the days of snow;
Ah, that's the reason a bird can sing -
On his darkest day he believes in Spring.

You have to believe in happiness -
It isn't an outward thing.
The Spring never makes the song, I guess,
As much as the song the Spring.
Aye, many a heart could find content
If it saw the joy on the road it went,
The joy ahead when it had to grieve,
For the joy is there - but you have to believe.
