  • (For only he can heal me)
    (For only he can heal me)
    (For only he can heal me)
    (For only he can heal me) there are times I get to feeling
    That this world has stole my grace (for only he can heal me)
    When everyday feels like a hustle (for only he can heal me)
    Every day I'm saving face (for only he can heal me)
    Tell a lie to make the paper (for only he can heal me)
    Put a little coin away (for only he can heal me)
    It's never-ending (for only he can heal me)

    When the trappings of the body (for only he can heal me)
    Lead me to that hopeless place (for only he can heal me)
    And I feel my spirit crumble (for only he can heal me)
    Under strain and under guilt (for only he can heal me)
    Lay me down in rivers cleansing (for only he can heal me)
    Where the tall grass grows and grows (for only he can heal me)
    And let me wait until my saviour comes home (for only he can heal me)

    For only he can heal me (for only he can heal me)
    Help me overcome it (for only he can heal me)
    For only he can heal me with his touch (for only he can heal me)
    Help me overcome it (for only he can heal me)
    (for only he can heal me)

    From the towns and from the cities (for only he can heal me)
    Came a feeling of defeat (for only he can heal me)
    From the lame and from the wretched (for only he can heal me)
    Pouring forth unto the street (for only he can heal me)
    Lead me to my only temple (for only he can heal me)
    Where I overcome defeat (for only he can heal me)
    And let me rest there by my saviour's feet (for only he can heal me)

    For only he can heal me (for only he can heal me)
    Help me overcome it (for only he can heal me)
    For only he can heal me with his touch (for only he can heal me)
    Help me overcome it (for only he can heal me)
    (For only he can heal me)

    (For only he can heal me)
    (For only he can heal me)
    (For only he can heal me)
    (For only he can heal me)
    (Fo-oh-oh, he-heal-me)
    (Fo-oh-oh, he-heal-me)
    (Fo-oh-oh, he-heal-me)
    (Fo-oh-oh, he-heal-me) Writer/s: KELE OKEREKE, RUSSELL LISSACK
