Blind Faith - Matthews / While
From the album ‘Quest’ While and Matthews

When the big storm broke and the rains came down
Everybody ran to higher ground
Harry just smiled, turned and walked inside
He said, “Why do they run from their homes in fear
I’ve got faith and it keeps me here, I know that the Lord will provide”
And when the water rose to Harry’s door
Came inside soaked the floor he kept faith
They said “Come out now while it’s light
The River’s gonna break in the middle of the night”
Harry said, “No, I’ll stand my ground the good Lord won’t let me down
Faith - I got Faith. Faith - I got Faith”

Like a thunder roll with a mighty roar
The banks could hold the River no more
And she rushed into the town like an angry tide
Harry moved up to the second floor
The water seeped under the bedroom floor
Still Harry said, “The Lord will provide”
When they came to rescue him in boats
He said, “I’m pinning all my hopes, on my faith”
Helicopters threw him lines he said, “I’m waiting for another sign
Ah! No I’ll stand my ground the good Lord won’t let me down
Faith – I got Faith. Faith – I got Faith”

When Harry arrived at that place on high
He looked St. Peter in the eye and said “Why, when I had faith?”
Did you let the waters take me whole?
Drench my body and swallow my soul, “Why, when I had faith?”
Peter said “Your faith is blind we must have sent a dozen signs,
Men with ropes and boats and planes people risked their lives in vain
What did you expect to see the sky to split to part the sea?
It wasn’t God that let you drown only one thing let you down
Faith - Blind Faith. Faith - Blind Faith”

It wasn’t God that let you drown only one thing let you down
You know you could’ve saved your life, you should’ve left town with your wife
It wasn’t God that let you drown only one thing let you down
Blind Faith!
