(Dolly Parton)

In a dream I was walkin' 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 in 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', let us lift Him up 

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 
I'll draw all men unto me if I be lifted up 

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 
There is life everlasting, let us lift Him up 

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 lifetd 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 
Oh if I be lifted up 

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, and joy in His love 
It's a wonderful feelin', lift Him up 

He said if I 
Be lifted up 
He said if I be lifted up, that's what he said 
He said if I 
Be lifted up 
If I be lifted up
