Johnny Cash - I Saw A Man Lyrics




Last night I dreamed an angel came.
He took my hand, he called my name.
He bid me look the other way;
I saw a man, I heard him say

He said if I be lifted up
I'll 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.

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 Saviour say

He said if I be lifted up
I'll 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

    Written by Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith, one of the best modern hymns of the 1950s. My mom and dad used to sing it together. I wish they could do it again...

    I am not a Jimmy Swaggart fan but no one can sing this song like him

  6. Tripod Threefoot

    I came here because of a program heard in Barbados on Q 100.7 FM on Sundays 8 P.M. EST. The program always starts with this song, then the broadcaster takes you on historical journey followed by various songs.

    And still sounds like with the likes of Ricky Skaggs, Alan Jackson, George Strait, Randy Travis, Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Rodney Crowell, Clint Black and Dwight Yoakam.
