Brothers Keeper Lyrics

by India Arie

Brothers and sisters!

Hey!

Will I walk what I talk

Will I open my heart
Can you trust me when I give him my word
Will I judge him or love him
Put nothing above him
Help him to see what he's worth
Can I tend to his needs?
When he's down to his knees?
Can I still see the light in his eyes
Can I lend him a hand
Let him still be a man
Will I run or still be by his side

Am I my brother's keeper
Yes I am!
Am I my brother's teacher?
Yes I am!
Am I the one to reach him?
Yes I can!
Am I my brother's keeper?
Yes I am!
Yes I am!

When he's pushed to the edge when he's out on a ledge?
Can I help him to think with his heart
When he's wrong when he's right
I'll be there to remind him
He's made in the image of God
When he struggles with troubles
He needs to know
That his mistakes don't define his life
I'm a living example that there's a chance for redemption
On the other side

Am I my brother's keep
Yes I am!
Am I the one to teach him?
Yes I am!
Am I the one to reach him?
Yes I can!
Am I my brother's keeper?
Yes I am!
Yes I am!

Yeah
Sing together like
Hey!
Yeah

Yes I am!
Am I my brother's teacher?
Yes I am!
Am I the one to reach him?
Yes I can!
Am I my brother's keeper?
Yes I am!
Yes I am!
Am I my brother's keeper?
Yes I am!
Am I my brother's teacher?
Yes I am!
Am I the one to reach him?
Yes I can!
Am I my brother's keeper?
Yes I am!
Yes I am!
Yes I am!
