Marty Robbins – With His Hand On My Shoulder lyrics

With his hand on my shoulder
I sail this sea of sin
With his hand on my shoulder
I cannot help but win.

I'll follow as he pilots me
Through waters dark and cold
With His hand on my shoulder
I know I'll reach my goal.

My every hope is anchored
To the faith I have in him
I know I'll reach the shoreline
Though at times the lights are dim.

He'll take me past the rocky cliffs
From life's storm I'll be released
With his hand on my shoulder
I'll have everlasting peace.

--- Instrumental ---

Surrounded by an angry sea
That's made of hate and sin
But I won't sink as long as I
Won't let the waters in.

And with the help of God I know
I'll never lose my way
With his hand on my shoulder
I cannot go astray.

I have a home up in the sky
And he made it just for me
But to prove that I'll deserve this home
I have to sail this sea.

The waves of sin sometimes are high
And the spray might touch my clothes
With his hand on my shoulder
It will never touch my soul...
