2139. Oh, I Know the Lord's Laid His Hands on Me

Refrain:
Oh, I know the Lord, I know the Lord,
I know the Lord's laid his hands on me.
Oh, I know the Lord, I know the Lord,
I know the Lord's laid his hands on me.

1 Leader: Did ever you see the like before?
All: I know the Lord's laid his hands on me;
Leader: King Jesus preaching to the poor!
All: I know the Lord's laid his hands on me. [Refrain]

2 Oh, wasn't that a happy day
I know the Lord's laid his hands on me;
when Jesus washed my sins away!
I know the Lord's laid his hands on me. [Refrain]

3 Some seek the Lord and don't seek him right;
I know the Lord's laid his hands on me;
they fool all day and pray at night,
I know the Lord's laid his hands on me. [Refrain]

4 My Lord's done just what he said;
I know the Lord's laid his hands on me;
he's healed the sick and raised the dead;
I know the Lord's laid his hands on me. [Refrain]
