Heed the Call

He Didn't Lift Us Up to Let Us Down

by The Imperials

on Heed the Call (1979)

He didn't bring us this far to leave us
He didn't teach us to swim to let us drown
He didn't build His home in us to move away
He didn't lift us up to let us down

There are some promises in a letter
Written a long, long time ago
They're not getting older, they're getting better
Because He still wants us to know

He didn't bring us this far to leave us
He didn't teach us to swim to let us drown
He didn't build His home in us to move away
He didn't lift us up to lеt us down
(To let us down)
He didn't lift us up to let us down

Nеver use the word defeat
Claim His promises, every one of them
And every spoken word He'll hear
Because we're everything to Him

He didn't bring us this far to leave us
He didn't teach us to swim to let us drown
He didn't build His home in us to move away
He didn't lift us up to let us down
(To let us down)
He didn't lift us up to let us down

Was it the song you were looking for? Yes 👍🏼

thank you so much. My grandmother use to sing this song to us and my sister and I couldn't remember the entire lyrics. It helped so much.
