I SAW A MAN
DLS   12-29-03
If I Be Lifted Up, I'll Draw All Man To Me
I Touched The Hem Of His Garment That Fell 'Round Him There
ARTHUR SMITH WROTE "I SAW A MAN" IN 1956.  HANK SNOW WAS THE FIRST PERFORMER TO RECORD THE SONG. 

RICKY VAN SHELTON RECORDED THE HYMN IN 1985.  HE IS SINGING IT FOR THIS WEB PAGE.

LAST NIGHT I DREAMED AN ANGEL CAME,
HE TOOK MY HAND, HE CALLED MY NAME.
HE MADE ME LOOK THE OTHER WAY,
I SAW A MAN, I HEARD HIM SAY...

HE SAID,  "IF I BE LIFTED UP, I'D DRAW ALL MEN TO ME."
HE TURNED AND THEN
I SAW THE NAIL-SCARRED HANDS
THAT BLED FOR ME.
I TOUCHED THE HEM OF HIS GARMENT
THAT FELL 'ROUND HIM THERE.
MY LIFE, MY HEART, I GAVE MY SOUL WAS IN HIS CARE.

I TOUCHED THE HEM OF HIS GARMENT

MY LIFE, MY HEART, I GAVE MY SOUL WAS IN HIS CARE.

MY LIFE, MY HEART, I GAVE MYSOUL WAS IN HIS CARE.
WHEN I AWOKE, MY HEART BEAT SO,
AND IN THE DARK, I SAW A GLOW.
THIS WAS NO DREAM, HE TURNED MY WAY,
AGAIN, I HEARD MY SAVIOR SAY...
