David Crosby – Jesus Of Rio lyrics

Written by Graham Nash and Jeff Pevar



You are standing on top of the world
With the rich on one side and the poor on the other
There's an ocean between them before your eyes
Is all of humanity ready to rise up

You are standing for love in the land
And all the people are searching for something
There's a notion that all can fulfill their dreams
Of living in freedom with all of their families

In your open arms giving grace,
Holy palms wiping their faces of tears
To see your face and your open heart
Is comforting all of our fears

Jesus of rio

And if everyone opened their eyes they'd see
That loving feeling is waiting within us

And if everyone opened their heart they'd see
That every human is holy to someone

With your open arms giving grace,
Holy palms wiping their faces of tears
To see your face and your open heart
Is comforting all of our fears

You are standing on top of the world
A sacred symbol of love everlasting
Devotion can lift us up to the skies
With all of humanity ready to rise up
