Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself, & you can look at others diff'rently
Put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee

Every time I look into the Holy Book, I wanna tremble
When I read about the part where a carpenter cleared the temple
See those buyers and the sellers were no diff'rent fellas
Than what you & I profess to be
And it causes me shame to know that man is not what he should be

Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea
Take a look at yourself, & you can look at others diff'rently
Put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee

Hey, my mama taught me how to pray, before I reached the age of seven
When I'm down on my knees, hey, I'm close to heaven."
My daddy lived his life with 2 kids & a wife
& you've got to do what you've got to do
But he showed me enough of what it takes to see you through

This is what he used to tell me...

Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea
Ya got'a take a good look at yourself, & you can look at others diff'rently
Put your hand in the hand of the man from Galilee
