Lean On Me Lyrics

This is for that little child with no father
For that man that doesn't have a place to stay
And for that little boy living with AIDS
Can I tell you a story, tell you a story?
You can lean on me

There's a man
(Oh yes)
Standing on the corner
He has no home
He has no food
And his blue skies are gone
(Yes, it is)
Can't you hear him cryin' out?

And there's a girl
Searching for a father and a friend
Praying that the storm someday will end
But instead of walking away
Open up your heart and say

I am here
You don't have to worry
I can see
(I can see your tears)
Your tears
I'll be there in a hurry when you call
(Yes, I will)

Friends are there to catch you when you fall
(Here's my shoulder)
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
(Hallelujah)

Listen

Oh, there's a child
Who is sick and begging to be free
But there is no cure for his disease
He looks up to his mother and

As she hold his hand
(Holds his hand)
Prayin' that someday
The sun will shine again
(And the pain?)
And the pain will end
(Pain will end, come on)

I am here
(I am here)
You don't have to worry
(You don't have to worry)
I can see
(I see)
Your tears
(Your tears, yeah)
I'll be there in a hurry when you call
(I'll be there in a hurry when you fall)

Friends are there to catch you when you fall
(I'm your friend and I'll catch you when, when, when you fall)
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
(Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me)

Tell me, how can I, how can I love Jesus?
When I've never seen His face
Yeah, I see you dying
And I turn and walk away

So hold my hand
Let me take you to a friend of mine
He's waiting just to ease your troubled mind
Yeah, yeah, He loves you more than you'll ever know
'Stead of walking away
Open up
Open up your heart and say
Come on

I am here
(I am here)
You don't have to worry
I can see your tears
I'll be there in a hurry when you call

When you call, friends will be there to catch you when
Catch you when you fall
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
(Thank you Jesus, yeah)
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
(You can lean on me)
Lean on me, yeah, yeah
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
You're my friend but you're also my brother
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
Hallelujah
