Brothers and sisters!

Can you trust when I give him my word
But nothing above him
Can I attend to his needs?
Can I till the light in his eyes
And he'll still be a man

Yes I am!
Yes I am!
Yes I am!
Yes I am!

Can I help him to think with his heart
I'll be there to remind him
When he's troubled with troubles
That his mistakes don't define his life
On the other side
I'm my brother's keep
Am I the one to teach him?
Am I the one to reach him?
Am I my brother's keeper?
Yes I am!
Sing together like

Yes I am!
Yes I am!
Yes I am!
Am I my brother's keeper?
Am I my brother's teacher?
Am I the one to reach him?
Yes I am!
Yes I am!
