Brother's Keeper

Album: Songversation (2013)
  • Brothers and sisters!

    Hey!

    Will I walk what I talk

    Will I open my heart
    Can you trust me when I give him my word
    Will I judge him or love him
    Put nothing above him
    Help him to see what he's worth
    Can I tend to his needs?
    When he's down to his knees?
    Can I still see the light in his eyes
    Can I lend him a hand
    Let him still be a man
    Will I run or still be by his side

    Am I my brother's keeper
    Yes I am!
    Am I my brother's teacher?
    Yes I am!
    Am I the one to reach him?
    Yes I can!
    Am I my brother's keeper?
    Yes I am!
    Yes I am!

    When he's pushed to the edge when he's out on a ledge?
    Can I help him to think with his heart
    When he's wrong when he's right
    I'll be there to remind him
    He's made in the image of God
    When he struggles with troubles
    He needs to know
    That his mistakes don't define his life
    I'm a living example that there's a chance for redemption
    On the other side

    Am I my brother's keep
    Yes I am!
    Am I the one to teach him?
    Yes I am!
    Am I the one to reach him?
    Yes I can!
    Am I my brother's keeper?
    Yes I am!
    Yes I am!

    Yeah
    Sing together like
    Hey!
    Yeah

    Yes I am!
    Am I my brother's teacher?
    Yes I am!
    Am I the one to reach him?
    Yes I can!
    Am I my brother's keeper?
    Yes I am!
    Yes I am!
    Am I my brother's keeper?
    Yes I am!
    Am I my brother's teacher?
    Yes I am!
    Am I the one to reach him?
    Yes I can!
    Am I my brother's keeper?
    Yes I am!
    Yes I am!
    Yes I am!
