I Think of You - 1971
 
Put Your Hand
in the Hand
 
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 you can look at others differently,
By puttin’ your hand in the hand of the man
From the Galilee!
 
Every time I look into the holy book
I want to tremble . . .
When I read about the part where the carpenter
Cleared the temple . . .
For the buyers and the sellers were no different fellas
Than what I profess to be,
And it causes me shame to know
I’m not the guy that I should be!
 
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 you can look at others differently,
By puttin’ your hand in the hand of the man
From the Galilee!
 
Mamma taught me how to pray
Before I reached the age of seven . . .
She said: There’ll come a time when
we’ll probably need a room
In heaven!
And I’m feeling kinda guilty ‘bout the number of times
To do what we must do,
But we forget what he said when we figured that
He’d still make room!
 
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 you can look at others differently,
By puttin’ your hand in the hand of the man
From the Galilee!
 
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 puttin’ your hand in the hand of the man
From the Galilee!
 
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 puttin’ your hand in the hand of the man
From the Galilee!
