I Have Confidence (Maria)



What will this day be like? I wonder.What will my future be? I wonder.It could be so exciting to be out in the world, to be freeMy heart should be wildly rejoicingOh, what's the matter with me?
I've always longed for adventureTo do the things I've never daredAnd here I'm facing adventureThen why am I so scared
A captain with seven childrenWhat's so fearsome about that?
Oh, I must stop these doubts, all these worriesIf I don't I just know I'll turn backI must dream of the things I am seekingI am seeking the courage I lack
The courage to serve them with relianceFace my mistakes without defianceShow them I'm worthyAnd while I show them I'll show me
So, let them bring on all their problemsI'll do better than my bestI have confidence they'll put me to the testBut I'll make them see I have confidence in me
Somehow I will impress themI will be firm but kindAnd all those children (Heaven bless them!)They will look up to me
And mind me with each step I am more certainEverything will turn out fineI have confidence the world can all be mineThey'll have to agree I have confidence in me
I have confidence in sunshineI have confidence in rainI have confidence that spring will come againBesides which you see I have confidence in me
Strength doesn't lie in numbersStrength doesn't lie in wealthStrength lies in nights of peaceful slumbersWhen you wake up -- Wake Up!
It tells me all I trust I lead my heart toAll I trust becomes my ownI have confidence in confidence alone(Oh help!)
I have confidence in confidence aloneBesides which you see I have confidence in me!
