"Put Your Hand In The Hand"

(As recorded by Ocean)
GENE MACLELLAN

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 differently
By puttin' your hand in the hand of the man from-a Gallilee.

Ev'ry time I look into the Holy Book I want to tremble (tremble)
When I read about the part where the carpenter cleared the temple (temple)
For the buyers and the sellers were no different fellas
Than what I profess to be
And it causes me shame to know we're not the people we should be.

So 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 differently
By putting your hand in the hand of the man from-a Gallilee.

My mama taught me how to pray before I reached the age of seven
She said, "There'll come a time when there'll probably be room in heaven"
But I'm feeling kinda of guilty 'bout the number of times
To do what we must do
Oh we forget what he said when we figured that he'd still make room (So, you gotta)

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 differently
By puttin' your hand in the hand of the man from Gallilee (everybody come along)

Put your hand in the hand of the man who stilled the water (stilled the water)
Put your hand in the hand of the man who calmed the sea (calmed the sea)
Take a look at yourself and you can look at others differently
By putting your hand in the hand of the man from Gallilee.
