The Man Upstairs

by Pat Severin

When your heart is feeling heavy
And weighed down with all your cares,
Just remember, God is willing.
Take it to the “Man upstairs.”

Please remember that He loves you.
He’s the only one who shares
Every sorrow, that besets you.
Take it to the “Man upstairs”

He won’t leave you or forsake you.
If you’re broken, He repairs.
Come to Him, He’ll always help you.
Take it to the “Man upstairs.”

Life can catch you weak, bewildered.
He will straighten your affairs.
He will clear up your confusion.
Take it to the “Man upstairs.”

God is there each time you call him.
Bring it all in all your prayers.
Let Him help you, don’t forget to
Take it to the “Man upstairs.”
