Charles, Ray - Heaven Help Us All Lyrics




Heaven help the child who never had a home,
Heaven help the girl who walks the street alone
Heaven help the roses if the bombs begin to fall,
Heaven help us all.

Heaven help the black man if he struggles one more day,
Heaven help the white man if he turns his back away,
Heaven help the man who kicks the man who has to crawl,
Heaven help us all.

Heaven help us all, heaven help us all, help us all.
Heaven help us, Lord, hear our call when we call
Oh, yeah!

Heaven help the boy who won't reach twenty-one,
Heaven help the man who gave that boy a gun.
Heaven help the people with their backs against the wall,
Lord, Heaven help us all.

Heaven help us all, heaven help us all, heaven help us all, help us all.
Heaven help us, Lord, hear our call when we call.

Now I lay me down before I go to sleep.
In a troubled world, I pray the Lord to keep, keep hatred from the mighty,
And the mighty from the small,
Heaven help us all.
Oh, oh, oh, yeah!
Heaven help us all.

  1. Billy Barnard

    Love this song first sung by Stevie Wonder and this version with lovely Gladys is brilliant. Excellent duet. will look out for this album.

  2. mickleesongs

    This was Ray's last album, outsold all the others, and won 8 of the 10 Grammys it was nominated for. To my ears he didn't have the full tank of gas in his lungs and voice that powered most of his music. Still, 90% of Brother Ray's voice is streets ahead of even some of the world's finest singers and musicians, some of whom guested on the record. They don't make 'em like this anymore.

    Still 100% soul!
