Emmylou Harris – If I Be Lifted Up lyrics

(Traditional)

Down in the valley while on my knees
I asked my Jesus carry please
He promised that he'd take care of me
If I would lift him up

He said if I
Be lifted up
He said if I
Be lifted up
I 'll be your father
I'll be your mother
I'll be your sister
And your brother

He said if I
Be lifted up
I'll bring joy, joy, joy
To your soul

When I am lonely
When I am sad
My Jesus comes and makes me glad
He is the dearest friend I've have had
I want to lift Him up

He said if I
Be lifted up
He said if I
Be lifted up
I 'll be your father
I'll be your mother
I'll be your sister
And your brother

He said if I
Be lifted up
I'll bring joy, joy, joy
To your soul
