Doubting Thomas

Doubting Thomas

Chris Thile

Chris Thile Music (2005)


What will be left when I’ve

Drawn my last breath,

Besides the folks I’ve met

and those who know me,


Will i discover a

Soul saving love, or

Just the dirt above

and below me,


I’m a Doubting Thomas,

i took a promise,

But i do not feel safe,

Oh me of little faith,


Sometimes i pray for a

Slap in the face,

Then i beg to be spared

'cause I’m a coward,

If there's a master of death

i'll bet he's holding his breath,

As i show the blind and tell the deaf

about his power,


I’m a Doubting Thomas,

i can't keep my promises,

'cause i don't know what's safe,

Oh me of little faith


Can i be used to help

Others find truth,

When I’m scared  I’ll find proof

That it’s a lie,


Can i be lead down a trail

Dropping bread crumbs,                                           

To prove I’m not ready to die,


Please give me time

To decipher the signs,

Please forgive me

for time that I’ve wasted,


I’m a Doubting Thomas,

I’ll take your promise,

Though i know nothin's safe,

Oh me of little faith
