In the upper room with Jesus
Singing in tears blessed fears
Daily there my sins confessing
Beggin for his mercy sweet
Trusting his grace and power
Seeking help in loving prayers
It is this how I feel the spirit
And I sat with him and pray 

Oh, he's in in the upper room
With Jesus
Oh, it's in the upper room 
When my lord and your god
When he's in the upper room
Yes, he's in the upper room
Well he's in the upper room
Talking with the Lord
