Ocean – Put Your Hand In The Hand lyrics

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 and
A you can look at others diff'rently

By puttin' your hand in the hand
Of the man from-a Galilee.

Ev'ry time I look into the Holy Book
I want to tremble
When I read about the part
Where a carpenter cleared the temple;
For the buyers and the sellers were
No diff'rent fellas than what I profess to be

And it causes me shame to know I'm not the gal
That I should be.

Put your hand in the hand...

Mama taught me how to pray before
I reached the age of seven

And when I'm down on my knees that's a
When I'm close to heaven;
Dady lived his life with two kids and a wife;
You do must you must do
But he showed me
Enough of what it takes to get you through.
