From: Guitar Picker -

Put your (G) hand in the hand of the Man who stilled the (D7) water.
Put your (Am7) hand in the hand of the (D7) Man who parted the (G) sea. (G7) (C) (G)
Take a (Dm) look at your life and (G7) you will look at (C) others different(C#dim)ly,
By putting your (G) hand in the (Em7) hand of the (A7) Man from (D7) Galilee. (G) (C) (G)

(G) Every time I look in the Holy Book I want to (D7) tremble,
When I (Am7) read about the part where a (D7) carpenter cleared the (G) temple. (G7) (C) (G)
For the (Dm7) buyers and the sellers were no (G7) different fellas than what (C) I profess to (C#dim) be,
And it (G) causes me (Em7) pain to know I'm (A7) not the (D7) guy I should (G) be.


Mama taught me how to pray before I reached the age of seven,
And when I'm down on my knees that's when I'm close to heaven.
Daddy lived his life with two kids and wife and you do what you must do,
But he showed me enough of what it takes to get you through.
