Lyrics

Listen to me people, I’ve got a tale
As tall as the trees and as true as I failed
God has done wonders, done wonders for me
He’s rescued my soul with visions and dreams

Chorus:

I saw a tree standing tall above the earth
 And it gave food and shelter for the beasts and the birds
 But they said, “Cut it down, cut it down, cut it down!
 This high elevation has gone to his crown.”

Daniel my friend, he told it to me straight
“Oh king, cut it out and the axe may be stayed
Start living right man, look out for the least
Quit acting like one or you’ll end up a beast.”

Chorus

I went down, I went down, I went down
And I crawled on all fours on the ground
Like an ox, I ate grass until seven times past
And I looked up at last…

I saw a tree standing tall above the earth
And it gave food and shelter for the beasts and the birds
And I looked up to heaven and I understood And I praise the Most High, for He’s just and He’s good
Oh, I praise the Most High, for He’s just and He’s good
