The Man Upstairs

Written By: Barrlynn West

The Man Upstairs

V1
Let me tell you all my brothers and sisters in this land
There was a time not long ago when I needed a helping hand
Lost with no direction, not goin’ anywhere
Til I found out ‘bout the Man upstairs

CH
The Man upstairs, the Man upstairs
Guides you like a lighthouse through the foggy air
And if you need a helping hand He’ll always be there
I’m talkin ‘bout the Man upstairs

V2
Standin in the river, the preacher called my name
He raised up his arms, the congregation sang
Glory halleluiah as water ran through my hair
Glory halleluiah to the Man upstairs

CH
The Man upstairs, the Man upstairs
He brings salvation, He’s just and fair
And if you need a helping hand He’ll always be there
I’m talkin ‘bout the Man upstairs

V3
Now when you least expect it, that Devil will come to call
He never gives up tryin to make you fall
That’s when I fold my hands and say a little prayer
And open up a line to the Man upstairs

CH
The Man upstairs, the Man upstairs
He always listens, He’s always cares
And if you need a helping hand He’ll always be there
I’m talkin ‘bout the Man upstairs

CH
The Man upstairs, the Man upstairs
He brings us comfort when there’s despair
And when we need a helping hand He’ll always be there
I’m talkin ‘bout the Man upstairs

TAG
Yeah, He always loves you, He’s always be there
I’m talkin ‘bout the Man upstairs
Let me tell you people ‘bout the Man upstairs
