If I Be Lifted Up


(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

This song is sung by Emmylou Harris on her Angel Band album, and by the Stanley Brothers on Hymns and Sacred Songs.

Also on The Slanley Brothers: The Early Years 1958-1961, disc 1 (Starday/King KBSCD-7000), where notes say "The latter song ["He Said If I Be Lifted Up"] dates back to 1944 when it was copyrighted by Edith Clapp Bradshaw."

There were also fine renditions by the Johnson Mountain Boys ['Let the Whole World Talk'] and the Kentucky Colonels [Livin' in the Past'].

Geez, How'd you guess Mary that I was listening to Emmylou Harris.(LOL) I had forgotten about that album of hers ("Angel Band")But it is my favorite gospel recording. Brought me a bit of comfort when my grandmother died a few years back. I only wish I could tell Emmylou how much I appreciated the recording. Thanks for your help all, Charcloth

2nd stanza; My Jesus told me, when things go wrong, just keep on praying all day long, I'll fight your battles, I'll make you strong, if you will lift Me up.

Don't know why no one sings it.
