Hands On






INTRO
You, yea you
Put your hands on (repeat 4x), hands on
Wrap your arms around (repeat 4x), arms around
Open up your heart (repeat 4x), your heart CHORUS 1
May the Lord bless you and keep you
May he make his face to shine upon you
And be gracious unto you
May he lift up his countenance upon you
And give you peace VERSE 1
Wasn’t long ago we strived to live the Golden Rule
Now we teach of cyber bullies and online ridicule
There is talk of arming teachers in our children’s school
I know that it’s safety first, but sadly lockdown practice isn’t cool HALF CHORUS
May the Lord bless you and keep you
May he make his face to shine upon you VERSE 2
Shouting from the right and left, silence from the fence
We watch this back and forth and cry: “Where is the common sense?”
Why do children have to live a life that’s so intense
Is it so naive these days to pray a young life has some innocence
BRIDGE
We’re all somebody’s child, we have this in common
A world we all share
I’d like to think I was brought in this world
Raised on a parent’s prayer
You see children are the blessing, if you’ve forgotten
No matter their age
Young or old put your hands on a child
Like past generations prayed

Put your hands on
Put your hands on

CHORUS 2
May the Lord bless you and keep you
May he make his face to shine upon you
And be gracious unto you
May he lift up his countenance
May he lift up his countenance... and put

VERSE 3
Hands on, arms around, open your heart and put
Hands on, arms around, open your heart and put
Hands on, arms around, open your heart and put
Hands on, arms around, open your heart and put
Hands on, arms around, open your heart and put
Hands on, arms around, open your heart and put
Hands on, arms around, open your heart and put
Hands on
