REAL FAITH

Marty Funderburk and Tony Wood

Not some tragic struggle
Not some endless search
Just the story of some kids growing up in church
We took in every moment
With open eyes and ears
And one day took to heart
What we saw in those years
And we saw....

Real people with real struggles
Real lives bruised in real ways
And there was real joy
And real hope
And through it all we found real faith

We count it as a blessing to know such strength and peace
Oh, not that they were perfect,
But they lived with honesty
And the evidence we witnessed daily in each life
Helped pave the way for us to embrace the love of Christ
And we knew...

Real people with real struggles
Real lives bruised in real ways
And there was real joy
And real hope
And through it all we found real faith

Remind us, oh Father
That around us every day
The innocent eyes are watching
May they see our lives and say
I see....

Real people with real struggles
Real lives bruised in real ways
And there was real joy
And real hope
And through it all we found real faith
