With His Hand On My Shoulder   

Performer: Marty Robbins
 

G                            C              G
With his hand on my shoulder I sail a sea of sin

                             A7                D7
With his hand on my shoulder I cannot help but win

G                           C                      G
I'll follow as he pilots me through waters dark and cold

                             D7                  G
With His hand on my shoulder I know I'll reach my goal

 

                                 C               G
My every hope is anchored to the faith I have in him

                                A7                            D7
I know I'll reach the shoreline though at times the lights are dim

G                                              C              G
He'll take me past the rocky cliffs from life's storm I'll be released

                             D7                    G
With his hand on my shoulder I'll have everlasting peace

 

                                  C               G
Surrounded by an angry sea that's made of hate and sin

                              A7                  D7
But I won't sink as long as I don't let the waters in

G                                   C             G
And with the help of God I know I'll never lose my way

                            D7           G
With his hand on my shoulder I cannot go astray

 

                                   C                G
I have a home up in the sky and he made it just for me

                                      A7                 D7
But to prove that I deserve this home I have to sail this sea

                                            C                    G
The waves of sin sometimes are high and the spray might touch my clothes

                                D7                  G
With his hand on my shoulder it will never touch my soul
