HE LIFTS ME (WITH HIS STRONG ARMS)

When I'm feelin' down and blue
Lord help me come out to you [call out to you???]
Life's load is hard to abide
I'm glad I've got you by my side.

ch. The Lord, he lifts me with his strong arms, Oh yes he does
The Lord, he lifts me with his strong arms, Oh yes he does

Depair and grief can cloud my view
Help me see the signs of you
Light the way through life's dark time
Help me heal this heart of mine.

ch. The Lord, he lifts me with his strong arms, Oh yes he does
The Lord, he lifts me with his strong arms, Oh yes he does

All my friends have turned away
Bringing darkness to the day
You're the light within my eyes
I'm glad I've got you by my side.

How to live day by day
Help me Lord, show me the way
In your house I long to reside
I'm glad I've got you by my side.

ch. The Lord, he lifts me with his strong arms, Oh yes he does
The Lord, he lifts me with his strong arms, Oh yes he does

from the singing of Tim and Mollie O'Brien ...

Cheers! RJB

Guest, according to the album notes, it was written by 'E. Carson', the leader of a 'percussive dance group, the Fiddle Puppets'. Tim O'Brien heard it at a songwriting workshop at Winterhawk Festival in Hillsdale, New York. The actual title is simply 'He Lifts Me'.

That would be Eileen Carson, now known as Eileen Carson Schatz.

The Fiddle Puppet Dancers changed their name to Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble in 1994.

Capo at 5th fret

Verse:

Em G/Em   Em   G/Em

Em   G/Em   A    A

Chorus:

Em   C/Em   Em   Em

Em   C/Em   Em   Em

It’s nice to change to C instead of G on the second line of the verse and put a little Am in the transition to the chorus

Don't you think the second line is "Lord, help me call out to you"?

No doubt about it. Good catch, Guest! I added that as a note to the original post.

Here's a nice performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=st4e9NvvvBo, with a note from Mollie O'Brien that says:
    That song was actually written by Eileen Carson of the famed dance troupe Footworks. Just thought that'd be a good thing to know. Thanks, Mollie O'Brien
