Kirk Franklin – Lean On Me lyrics

[Bono] Oooooohhh

[Intro:]
[Kirk]
This is for that little child with no father
For that man that doesn't have a place to stay
For that little boy living with aids
[are. Kelly] Can I tell you a story, tell you a story
[Kirk] You can lean on me

[are. Kelly]
There's a man (oh yes)
Standing on the corner
He has no home
He has no food
And his blue skies are gone (yes it is)
Can't you hear him cryin' out

[Crystal Lewis]
And there's a girl
Searching for a father and a friend
Praying that the storm someday will end
But instead of walking away
Open up your heart and say

[Chorus:]
[Choir]
I am here
You don't have to worry
I can see...
[Kirk] I can see your tears
[Choir]
... Your tears
I'll be there in a hurry when you call
[Kirk] Yes I will
[Choir] Friends are there to catch you when you fall
[Kirk] Here's my shoulder
[Choir] Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me

[Kirk] halleluia
[Mary J. Blige] Ooooohhhhh
[Kirk] Listen

[Mary J. Blige]
Oh, there's a child
Who is sick and begging to be free
But there is no cure for his disease
He looks up to his mother and

[Choir] As she hold (holds), his hand (hand)
[Bono] Prayin' that someday
The sun will shine again
[Kirk] And the pain?
[Choir] And the pain will end
[Kirk] Pain will end... Come on

[Choir] I am here
[Mary J. Blige] I am here
[Choir] You don't have to worry
[Mary J. Blige] You don't have to worry
[Choir] I can see...
[Mary J. Blige] I see...
[Choir]... Your tears
[Mary J. Blige]... Your tears, yeah
[Choir] I'll be there in a hurry when you call
[Mary J. Blige] I'll be there in a hurry when you call
[Choir] Friends are there to catch you when you fall
[Mary J. Blige] I'm your friend and I'll catch you when, when, when you fall
[Choir] Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
[Mary J. Blige] Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me

[Bridge:]
[are. Kelly]
Tell me, how can I, how can I love Jesus
When I've never seen His face
[Bono] Yeah, I see you dying
[Crystal Lewis] And I turn and walk away

[Crystal] So hold my hand
[Mary J. Blige] Oooooohhhhh
[Bono] Let me take you to a friend of mine
[are. Kelly] He's waiting just to ease your troubled mind
[Kirk] Yeah, yeah, He loves you more than you'll ever know
[Bono] 'Stead of walking away
[Kirk] Open up
[Crystal Lewis] Open up your heart and say
[Kirk] Come on

[Chorus:]
[Choir] I am here
[are. Kelly] I am here
[Choir]
You don't have to worry
I can see your tears
I'll be there in a hurry when you call
[Kirk] Alleluia
[Choir] Aaaaaaah
[Tamila Mann - Family] When you call, friends will be there to catch you when, catch you when you fall
[Choir] Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
[Dalon Collins - Family] Thank you Jesus, yeah
[are. Kelly] Ohyeah, oh yeah

[Choir]
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
[Bono] You can lean on me
[are. Kelly] Lean on me, yeah, yeah
[Kirk] You're my friend but you're also my brother
[Bono] Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me

    This song as a lot of meaning to it but the one thing I get from it is that no mater what you are going through or were you are going in life God will all ways be there as a friend and a brother to use. If we need some one to talk to and there is no one around we left our hands to the sky and ask God to help us though it. Like the song said he is always there no mater were we are.
