Lift Your Eyes

[Inspired by a Sermon by Pastor George E. Britt
of Allen Chapel AME Church in Asbury Park, NJ]

When your burdens feel too heavy,
When your fears are holding you down
Trust in the Spirit, itís inside you.
Trust your life can be turned around.

Lift your eyes a little bit higher,
Raise your voice In a beautiful song.
Lift your eyes, itíll lift your spirit
Lift your eyes to the skies.

When the storm clouds are gathering Ďround you
When the sun is hiding from you
Trust the Spirit, it will guide you.
You will know what youíll have to do.

Lift your eyes a little bit higher,
Raise your voice In a beautiful song.
Lift your eyes, itíll lift your spirit
Lift your eyes to the skies.

When you feel youíre at a crossroad:
Youíve lost your job, youíve lost your home.
Around the corner is the future.
Life will change, but youíre not alone.

Lift your eyes a little bit higher,
Raise your voice In a beautiful song.
Lift your eyes, itíll lift your spirit
Lift your eyes to the skies.
