Calm On The Water Lyrics

Artist: Dolly Parton
Album: Burlap And Satin

In a dream I was walking in a beautiful field
I was gathering flowers at the foot of a hill
When a bright light descended and it spread o'er the land
Jesus stood on the mountain and he held out his hand

Then he came down from the mountain headed down to the sea
And the children strowed flowers at the path at his feet
And he was filled with compassion and the beasts from the wild
Came as gentle as lambs and they all walked at his side

There's a calm on the water a hush in the crowd
There's peace in the valley there's a stillness about
There's a light in the darkness there's joy in his love
Ain't that a wonderful feelin' left us lift him up
[ guitar ]
Then he suddenly vanished from the crowd down below
Reappeared on the mountain in a radiant glow
He said your questions are many but the answer is love
There is life everlasting let us lift him up

There's a calm on the water...

He said if I be lifted up he said if I be lifted up
What did he say he said if I be lifted up he said if I be lifted up
Let's lift him higher and higher and higher and higher each day
Let's lift him up he said if I be lifted up of if I be lifted up
