The country star shared a video to Instagram Friday encouraging people to "keep the faith" during this scary time.
"Don't be too scared, it's going to be all right. God loves you," Parton said.
The "Hello, I'm Dolly" artist kicked off her video with a lighthearted melody.
"Well hello! It's Dolly. Climbing the stairway to heaven because this virus has scared the H-E-L-L out of us," Parton sang at the beginning of the video. "I'm not making light out of the situation. Well, maybe I am because it's the light, I believe, that's going to dissolve the situation. I think God is in this, I really do."
She continued, saying she believes when the pandemic is over that everyone is going to come out a better person.
"I think he's trying to hold us up to the light so we can see ourselves and see each other through the eyes of love, and I hope we learn that lesson," Parton said. "I think that when this passes we're all gonna be better people."
Parton said despite the negativity around coronavirus, she's been staying positive.
Aside from dealing with coronavirus news, Parton also recently lost her dear friend Kenny Rogers, who died March 21.
Parton honored her "singing partner" with a video tribute on Twitter.
"I know that we all know that Kenny is in a better place than we are today and I'm pretty sure that he's going to be talking to God sometime today … and he's going to be asking him to spread some light on a bunch of this darkness," Parton said in her video. "I loved Kenny with all my heart. My heart's broken. A big ol' chunk of it has gone with him today."
Parton then got emotional as she held up a photo of her and Rogers.
"God bless you, Kenny, fly high straight into the arms of God," Parton said. "To the rest of you, keep the faith."
