Tailor of my soul

Written By: Yvonne Cobbs-Bey

(chorus)
In a dream I had a needle and thread. Everyone in the neighborhood were rejoycing where I stood. I was singing about a needle and thread, Lord what does that mean? I had a needle and thread Lord what does that mean.

(repeat chorus)

(special chorus)
Maybe it was to mend up the problems of this world.
Maybe it was to sew up the pieces of my life.
Maybe it was to stitch in piece where there was confusion.
I had a needle and thread,
Lord what does that mean?

Well, I know someone who can mend up a broken heart, and I
know someone who can sew together the pieces of my life.
I know someone who can stitch in peace where there is confusion.
His name is Jesus, He's the tailor of my soul.

(bridge)
Oh mend me up, sew me up, stitch me up, Jesus Jesus, I'm available to you, for you know what to do. You are the tailor of my soul

Oh mend me up, sew me up, stitch me up, Jesus Jesus

Oh mend me up, sew me up, stitch me up, Jesus Jesus

I'm available to you, for you know what to do.
You are the tailor of my soul
You are the tailor of my soul
you are the tailor of my soul
