"Were You There?" as written by and Stephen (leonard) Melillo....
Well, were you there, my good man
When the river called The Colorado
Made the canyon they call Grand?
Believe me now, my good man
I was there but now here I am

Well, were you there, my good man
When the watery volcano exploded into land?
Believe me now, my good man
I was there but now here I am

Well, were you there, my good man
When the weather became water
And then washed ashore the sand?
Believe me now, my good man
I was there but now here I am

Well, will you be there, my good man
When the sun is finally smothered out
With his mighty right hand?
Believe me now, my good man
I'll be there but now here I am

    General CommentI think one reading of these lyrics could support the perspective that the speaker, "I," is God - consider references to God as" the Great I Am" and this song's repetition of the phrase "I am." Each stanza provides an illustration of God's everlasting power over the man to whom he speaks, who could represent all of Man rather than just one man.
