I Believe This Belongs to You--Lyrics

By Jan Garrett, JD Martin, & Ester Nicholson

VERSE 1 I once heard a powerful story about a man who stood in his truth With such conviction in who he was that he would not be moved. Someone stepped out of a crowd and said, "Are you Martin Luther King?" He said "Yes I am," and the well-dressed man spit on him. Then King took out his handkerchief and wiped the hate from his suit. He gave it back to the man and said, "I believe this belongs to you.

CHORUS 1 I will lift you up and do what I can do. I see your heart, I know your pain, I have been there too. I will hold you high while you do what you have to do. But I am clear who is standing here, I believe this belongs to you.

VERSE 2 I once had a powerful story I used to carry around. I thought it was you all this time that held my spirit down. But now I know the truth of who I came here to be. You are my angel in disguise, and not my enemy. So I thank you for the part you played in the dance we had to do. I give you back your own true love, I believe it belongs to you.

CHORUS 2 I will lift you up and do what I can do. I feel your heart, I know your pain, I have been there too. I will hold you high while you do what you have to do. I give you back your freedom now, I believe it belongs to you.

CHORUS 3 I will lift you up and do what I can do. I feel your heart, I know your pain, I have been there too. I will hold you high while you do what you have to do. I give you back your own true love, I believe it belongs to you. I am clear as we're standing here, I believe this belongs to you.
