I saw myself today
I've smiled and looked away
Saddened by my visible life
Sorrow cut me like a knife
Nobody knows you
Without any doubt
Nobody wants to know you
When you're down and out

So sing a hymn for my soul
Stand by me as I grow
I'm just trying to climb up
Nine hills
In seven short days
Sing a hymn for my soul

I saw myself today
Didn't like
What I had to say
So right
I could only be wrong
Trouble is when I'm alone
No doubt, no self-control
Not a reason to cry
I feel like empty rain
Through an empty sky

So Sing a hymn for my soul
Stand by me as I grow
I'm just trying to climb up
Nine hills
In seven short days
So sing a hymn for my soul

I saw myself today
I looked good
Yes I had to say
Polished TV
Won't shine no more
Flyin' dragons
Surround my door
Even when I go crazy
To my own self
I'll be true
Ain't nobody's business
What I do

So sing a hymn for my soul
Stand by me as I grow
I'm just trying to climb up
Nine hills
In seven short days
Sing a hymn for my soul
Tell me about it

Sing a hymn for my soul
Sing a hymn for my soul
Stand by me as I grow
Won't you stand by me
Little girl, you know it
Sing a hymn for my soul
One more

Sing a hymn for my soul
Stand by me as I grow
I'm just tryin' to climb up
Nine hills
In seven short days
Sing a hymn for my soul
Let's go home

Sing a hymn for my soul
Sing a hymn for my soul
Stand by me as I grow
Won't you do that for me
Take me all the way home
Sing a hymn for my soul
Sing a hymn for my soul
Come on baby
Stand by me as I grow
