Representative Text

Refrain:
O give me your hand,
Give me your hand,
All I want is the love of God;
Give me your hand,
Give me your hand,
You must be loving at God's command.

1 You say you're aiming for the skies,
You must be loving at God's command.
Why don't you quit your telling lies?
You must be loving at God's command. [Refrain]

2 You say the Lord has set your free,
You must be loving at God's command.
Why don't you let your neighbor be?
You must be loving at God's command. [Refrain]

3 Some seek God's face but don't seek right,
You must be loving at God's command.
Pray in the day but none at night,
You must be loving at God's command. [Refrain]
