You all really need to have a better understanding of what you read on the net if you are going to use it for research.  This information is from Lyrics Depot.  There are many other music sites that could provide accurate information as well. 
Song Title:  I Believe
Words and Music by Ervin Drake, Jimmy Shirl, Al Stillman, and Irvin Graham
One of the most popular artists that recorded it was Frankie Laine on his album "Frankie Laine's Greatest Hits".  That was on the Columbia recording label at the time.  It's peak Billboard position in 1953 was #2.
It later was on the Billboard charts at #33 by The Bachelors in 1964.
Since then, many great recording artists have performed this beautiful, moving song including Frank Sinatra, Elvis and Tom Jones, who is still alive and wowing crowds today at age 69.  Here's a link to one of his earlier renditions.  Hold onto your seat. It's a powerful performance.  www.youtube.com

I Believe
 

I believe for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows
And I believe that somewhere in the darkest night a candle glows
I believe for everyone who goes astray
Someone will come to show the way
Yes I believe, oh I believe

I believe above the storm the smallest prayer will still be heard
I believe that someone in the great somewhere hears every word
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why I believe

Every time I hear a newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf or see the sky
Then I know why I believe

Interesting side note: Back in the times, in the US, when devotionals were played over school-wide PA networks to morning homeroom classes in public elementary/pre-secondary schools, this song was among the recorded standards that were heard. Other recording that were heard included The Ave Maria and the Our Father . . . Como recordings. That was in a Texas district's public schools but the practice - this was before  Madelyn Murray vs Baltimore School... Supreme Court decision outlawing the practice - was widespread.

Richard Tucker of the Metropolitan Opera Company on Columbia Label. A beautiful rendition. A Mobile,Al radio station used to sign-off with this song in 1955-56.

The above answers are wrong. "I Believe" was definitely by Frankie Laine, who became famous in the late 1940's with his first big hit, "Jezabel"

Don't know if this is the song you mean,  but if you google The Bachelors... I Believe ,  you should get the lyrics from there .
